EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING

BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN THEORY AND PRACTICE

Experiential education is a philosophy of education in which educators purposefully engage learners in direct experience and focused reflection. This strategy results in increase in knowledge and skills and develops the learner’s capacity to contribute to their communities. While experiential education is a broader philosophy of education, experiential learning considers the individual learning process. Examples of experiential learning are hands-on learning, action learning, adventure learning, free-choice learning, cooperative learning, service-learning, and situated learning.
