Experiential learning is learning through activity.
It involves developing personal understanding, knowledge, skills, and attitudes through analysing and reflecting on the implemented activities.
Why is experiential learning the most effective methodology?
Experience contributes to the formation of new constructs that underpin every learning and change process. Experiential learning is an active process that involves a person analysing and reflecting on an activity. Through analysis and reflection, experience leads to the acquisition of knowledge and skills that puts your employees at the centre of what they need to know. It combines activities that mimic real-world challenges and links the lessons learned in training with reality in the workplace.
Experiential learning allows participants to learn by doing, not just by listening, reading, or watching. Because they have personally experienced the results that come with applying their existing skills (both success and failure), they are more inclined to do something different the next time. In this way, new competencies are developed, more information is retained, and individuals are more likely to enthusiastically apply their new knowledge in the real world.
