……….. so what is Experiential Learning and what is it all about?
WikiPedia does it justice – (snip below from) - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Experiential_learning
Experiential learning is the process of learning through experience, and is more specifically defined as “learning through reflection on doing”. Experiential learning is distinct from rote or didactic learning, in which the learner plays a comparatively passive role. It is related to but not synonymous with other forms of active learning such as action learning, adventure learning, free choice learning, cooperative learning, and service learning.
Experiential learning is often used synonymously with the term “experiential education“, but while experiential education is a broader philosophy of education, experiential learning considers the individual learning process. As such, compared to experiential education, experiential learning is concerned with more concrete issues related to the learner and the learning context.
