When people outside of school ask me what I do for a living, and I tell them I’m a Director of 体验式教育, 他们经常这样回答, “Oh, 你做实地考察.” Most people associate “experience” in education with trips, but that’s a limited understanding of the field. While many schools offer trips, not all schools are experiential. Like everything at Emery/Weiner, our experiential education program is different. We invest time and resources into training teachers in experiential pedagogy so they can make their classrooms spaces for embodied learning. Our travel program is different too. From the heights of a mountain peak in West Texas to the low shores of the Dead Sea, we design travel experiences that foster belonging, 转变学生学习, and promote our mission of personal growth and community-mindedness. 最终, we want our students to understand the difference between encounter and engagement, 旅游与旅行之间, 在旅行和旅行之间. 是的，我组织旅行. 但, I like to think of my job as helping serve the school’s mission and working — along with all our faculty — to facilitate the journey each student here takes through their school years and into life beyond Emery/Weiner.
