BLACKSBURG, Va. (WDBJ7) Learning outside the classroom is giving students a better understanding of their studies at Virginia Tech.

Virginia Tech students put their work on display during the first Student Experiential Learning Conference. Friday students showcased their work from internships, research, service projects and study abroad trips.

They shared them with other students in hopes of improving their learning experience at tech and beyond.

"It's a tremendous opportunity for those students who have had this experience to share what they've learned and practice those critical communication skills in interacting with others," said Jill Sible, the associate vice provost for undergraduate education at Virginia Tech.

More than 500 students shared 250 projects that have helped them advance in their degree.
