Following is the abstract from the paper I completed. I would be happy to discuss the research if any of my friends or associates are interested.
"This study reports on two pilot studies that I conducted at a STEM university in Vietnam. The first was a 2016 survey of students’ exposure to and attitudes toward experiential learning. The mixed methods survey comprised closed-ended Likert-type scale and open-ended questions. The second study was a set of interviews in 2017 of instructors at the university with the same research topic. The interview questions sought more detail about students’ feelings toward experiential learning, plus instructors’ use of, and feelings toward, those methods. Both studies found wide use of experiential learning methods as well as broad appreciation for those methods among the instructors and students. These studies were pilots intended to provide background for the design of my dissertation research. The primary audience for this report is the administration of the university in which I conducted the studies."
The research included a survey of students at the university, asking them about the types of experiential learning the had encountered, and their attitudes toward the methods. The image at the top is a graph from the responses to one question.
