We take experiential learning to a whole new level. Read below to check out our services and how we incorporate our knowledge with the academic community in an innovative way.
In-Class Skype Session
Not everyone has the luxury of traveling to Peru, so we’re offering to bring Peru to you! Students can virtually learn in the classroom about ethical and responsible community-led development, sustainable agriculture, research methods and more. These in-class skype sessions have a way of making the reading come to life, resulting in better understanding of the communities that we work within Peru as well as the course material. We are happy to work together to select a topic that fits in the course objectives. Universities and faculty can arrange to set up in-class skype sessions by contacting us here.
Many classes require work with real organizations, but are those organization’s prepared to facilitate the student experience? We are! As a learning partner, we guide students to create meaningful and impactful deliverables that we’ll really use. Ever since our founding we’ve believed that students can have a tangible impact and put their learning into practice, so we’ve made that a cornerstone of our organization. Please contact us if you are interested in learning more about our role as learning partners.
Build Days into Existing Programs
Already have a program in Peru but like what we are doing? No problem! We are happy to explore opportunities to involve the AASD in your existing itineraries. We have many connections in the Sacred Valley region of Peru that can help enrich the overall course. We can do everything from incorporating a one-day site visit to designing a service learning component or even using local actors to explore the complexities of the existing itinerary theme. Reach out to start collaborating!
Assistance with Planning Responsible Programs
Are you visiting another area of Peru, or maybe have another geographic location in mind altogether? The AASD can offer support in creating programs with responsible organizations and local actors. Based on our philosophy, experience, and contacts, we can help you identify and co-design experiential learning programs around the world with organizations that are also doing great things. We know what to look for when it comes to ethical, responsible community engagement, so let us take a little bit of the load off you!
