Brevard College is committed to an experiential liberal arts education that encourages personal growth and inspires artistic, intellectual, and social action. At Brevard College, education is much more than learning the ''right answers'' and doing well on a test. Experiential academics develop students'students' ability to think, work in a group, and reflect upon and apply their learning to real-world problems.
Our classrooms are student-centered, not teacher-centered. Our classes are on problem-based. We use content to tackle important issues rather than deliver information. In addition to learning theory, our students apply theory to real situations. We cultivate skills through individualized learning and performance. However, we also develop our students'students' abilities to work collaboratively in teams—creating the perfect combination of skills needed for real-life situations.
Let's Let us say that a business class is going to study mission statements. One option would be for the professor to assign reading and provide a lecture on mission statements for the students, and then the students would take a test showing that they learned the critical content. Another option would be for the professor to set student responsibility for background information and facilitate direct work experiences. We believe that this second option helps students understand the material and use the content, which makes for more meaningful, exciting, and memorable learning.
We create active learning experiences that make learning exciting and applicable. We develop students'students' knowledge and understanding of a subject. We engage in focused reflection on their experience to identify learning they may apply to future endeavors. We don'tdon't teach students what to think; we develop students' ability to think.
We produce curious, prepared, and highly engaged graduates through hands-on learning experiences. We don'tdon't just want to tell you the right answer - we teach you how to question and discover the answers for yourself. We did don't want just to put a degree in your hands – we develop your ability and passion for making a difference in the world. We believe in experiential education, and this is reflected in the teaching methods we use in our classrooms.
With this philosophy, the possibilities for learning are endless. We learn about a subject in greater depth, with greater understanding, and with better retention. We learn and refine specific skills. We learn more about ourselves, our values, and how we work with others. Ultimately, these rich learning experiences open the doors for us to contribute to our communities, translating knowledge into action.
