After-school activities involving students’ personal interests/hobbies contribute to their holistic development, but often lack structures to attain the potentially impartable deeper learning, compounded by competing demands from formal curricula and perceived intangibility of benefits from such activities. Efficacy of a novel Experiential Learning courses, referred to as Deeper Experiential Engagement Projects (DEEP), which has been designed to address this challenge is studied.
In addition, a digital coaching environment is designed and developed for DEEP, to prototype a model of co-evolution of education with Artificial Intelligence. This is meant to complement the structural changes that our study has identified, that institutions may introduce for scaling up such pedagogical practice.​
