Experiential Learning For Impact: A User's Guide

Posted by April Giarla on May 25, 2016 6:00:00 AM

What is Experiential Learning?

Experiential Learning, simply put, is learning by doing. It allows participants to develop and acquire new skills in a safe environment that reflects real-world situations in an ultra-compressed time frame. Participants can experience years of market activities in a matter of days or even hours.

Experiential learning has a long tradition that can be traced back to ancient civilizations, including Chinese, Greek and Egyptian societies. Closer to our time, psychologists have been using child development as one of the greatest examples of experiential learning: the ability to learn by exploring, making mistakes, experimenting, and learning, all by oneself.
