Presents a review of experiential learning and discusses the advances made, and contemporary practices.
Offers a method as a proven and effective model for development.
Includes cases, and practical examples of experiential learning in action in traditional settings and the emerging, online environment, and guidance on recognizing and designing learning rich experiences.
Focuses on the critical phases of processing: sharing thoughts and feelings, reflection, conceptual modeling, and learning application.
Part One presents a review of experiential learning, discusses the advances made, outlines contemporary practices, and makes the case for the method as a proven and effective model for development.
Part Two offers cases, and practical examples of experiential learning in action in both traditional settings and the emerging, online enironment, and guidance on recognizing and designing learning rich experiences.
Part Three focuses on the critical phases of processing: sharing thoughts and feelings, reflection, conceptual modeling, and learning application.
Sample topics include: The theoretical underpinnings of experiential; replicating actual work environments; action learning assignments; realistic and metaphoric games and simulations; experiential “jolts”;debrief models; learning styles and experiential learning; experiential methodologies and experiential e-learning.
