Abstract 

This paper describes how student learning in the affective domain has been incorporated within two second-year undergraduate subjects offered by the School of Computing and Information Technology at the University of Western Sydney. The author considers that students’ experiences within an enriched learning environment can assist them in developing the personal traits, teamwork and interpersonal skills desired by future employers. This makes it possible for students participating in the learning process to not only achieve learning objectives in the cognitive domain (technical skills and knowledge), but also to benefit from those in the affective domain (values, attitudes, meta-learning).

Keywords: enriched learning environment, affective domain, undergraduate learning
