Camosun launches interactive education website 

On January 31, Camosun College announced it was launching a new interactive applied learning website; the site is an arm of the Applied Learning project, which is underway at the college. The site allows users to learn more about applied learning and to look at how faculty plan and implement their courses. Students can also see on the site where applied learning is available at the college. At Camosun, “applied learning” refers to cerebral, collaborative, hands-on learning that involves students and staff engaged with their learning environment. See for more details.
