LGBT Case Scenarios: An Experiential Learning Perspective  
This presentation was part of a diversity lecture series sponsored by PRIDE.
The presentation consisted of reviewing LGBT student case scenarios through small breakout groups, which allowed an experiential learning perspective. After discussing a particular case as a smaller group, the group would present the case to the whole audience with Dr Holt as the facilitator.
The audience consisted of college students.
