Experiential Learning

When working together we looked to build upon the skills you have both during our meetings and between.  Experiential Learning, as the name suggests, involves learning from experiences, both old and new.   David Kolb fist proposed the theory and it has influenced the work of many since then.  Kolb's definition is 'the process whereby knowledge is created through the transformation of experience.  Knowledge results from the combination  of grasping and transforming experience.'

Experiential Learning takes a more holistic approach rather than the emphasis of mental process as in cognitive theories.  This holistic approach emphasises how experience, including cognitions ie thoughts, perceptions, reasonings etc, environmental factors and emotions, influence the learning process.


Kolb's experiential model has four components; two ways of grasping experience - Concrete and Experience, two ways of transforming experience - Reflective Observation and Active Experimentation. These four components are often portrayed as a cycle.
