What is experiential learning?
Experiential learning is based on Kolb’s experiential learning cycles (ELT)**. It offers the opportunity to learn by doing and experiencing. Instead of telling, teaching, powerpoint-ing about how things should be done, participants are completely immersed in an experience, not just mentally, but also physically and emotionally. After each exercise they reflect on the experience and connect their experiences with easy-to-understand concepts. Next they put the learning conclusions into practice which in turn will lead to new learning experiences.
“Learning is the process by which knowledge is created through the transformation of experience” (Kolb, 1984, p. 38).
Benefits of the methodology
- In a very participative way we work with exercises which offer new insights
- The exercises are a simulation of what typically happens in a working environment. They are chosen to meet the learning objectives of the programme.
- After each exercise new insights from the experience are shared during reflection moments.
- By drawing learning points based upon a here-and-now experience, the insights are much more realistic and sustainable than simply learning through knowledge transfer.
- Abstract concepts and theoretical models are explained to support the learning experience.
- The methodology meets different learning styles: for people who like active learning, those who like to reflect, for those who like to understand theoretical models and for pragmatists. Everyone’s learning styles’ needs are met.
