This proposal describes our response to two challenges of online education: professional socialization and diversity engagement. We discuss experiential learning, active learning, and concrete experience to increase student engagement with diverse populations as a way to involve them with professional concerns in libraries and archives. This paper focuses on interactive projects that can be accomplished by students at separate locations and projects that students undertake in their own communities. We conclude by discussing the strengths and weaknesses of the projects.
