Field Trips

Field trips describe opportunities for incorporating outside experiences into a particular course. Courses with field trips, are an effective means of breaking down the barriers between university and community. Moreso, students who participate in field trips experience bonding which can improve the level of participation and dialogue in the course through these shared experiences. 

The University of Winnipeg offers a variety of courses with field trips across many departments. Creating experiences for students to apply and reflect on ideas and theories is a useful method for allowing students to actively participate in and explore course material.
