At the university, it is the moving past the theory of the classroom and engaging the world around us to engage the mind, body, skill and genius of the student that is the magic of learning . Action Learning is dynamic passionate learning that uses the high perception and reasoning of the student in pursuing understanding and using that understanding to bring about positive change and increased knowledge, while addressing pressing needs and complexities in our world.
