“Messiah College in Mechanicsburg, PA, has developed the Experiential Learning Initiative (ELI), which requires students to not only complete experiential learning but also to reflect and translate their experience into transferable skills.
At Messiah, experiential learning can take the form of internships, service learning, off-campus programs, leadership experiences or undergraduate research, but all of the options ask students to reflect about the experience in a way that directly relates to a future career. From their reflection, students then produce a “deliverable” that will help communicate their skills to potential employers after graduation, such as a resume, portfolio or website.”

Students Matt Babcock and Scott Hoeckele were equipped by local public radio station WITF to record the “sounds of Spain” during their recent cross-cultural trip there in May 2010. The two students talk about their experience traveling throughout the country against a soundtrack of noises and sounds they recorded along the way.

These sounds, along with interviews, will be broadcast on public radio Friday and Saturday.
Faculty members Randy Zwally, director of the guitar studies program, and Kim Yunez, professor of Spanish, took students on a cross-cultural trip to Spain to experience and explore the country’s history, architecture, and culture while recording sounds in a variety of locations, including the shop of renowned guitar artisan Antonio Marin.
Local National Public Radio station, WITF 89.5, will broadcast reports about the trip as well as the recorded sounds on Sept. 5 and Sept. 6.
The “Artbeat” feature will air on Sept. 5 at 5:35 a.m., 7:35 a.m., and between 2:30 and 3 p.m. The Sept. 6 broadcast will be twice during “Weekend America:” either at 1:29 and 3:29 p.m. or 2:29 and 4:29 p.m.
