Canadian universities are looking at how to authenticate students' off-campus experience. "Universities have long recognized that a lot of learning takes place outside the classroom," reports Daniel Drolet. "Now a growing number of schools are developing ways of tracking, measuring and authenticating that learning." It can be a win-win for both students and institutions. "For some universities, recognizing learning outside the classroom helps boost the university brand. "Acadia has long prided itself on its experiential approach – educating the whole student," says Dr. Herman. 'We work hard to try to blur the lines between activities inside the classroom and activities outside. It's natural to try to come up with a program that would recognize that integration.'"
