The Power of Experiential Learning | ReadyToManage

The Power of Experiential Learning | ReadyToManage | Serious Play | Scoop.it

Experiential Learning is simply learning by doing. It is the way we naturally learn to walk, talk and ride a bike and many other things (especially when we are young). Being in action stimulates all the key learning senses, not just the mind, and provides an active experience of the learning. In general, games and exercises are used to approximate to this way of learning and are typically used as metaphors for what happens in the real world. Broadly, they provide a safe environment to practice the new skill and maximize the learning.


Debriefing is the key to the learning experience. Most participants will not see the effect of their action in the game until you draw it out from them.

David A. Kolb (with Roger Fry)  created his famous model out of four elements: concrete experience, observation  and reflection, the formation of abstract concepts and testing in new  situations. He represented these in the famous experiential learning circle   that involves (1) concrete experience followed by (2) observation and experience  followed by (3) forming abstract concepts followed by (4) testing in new  situations (after Kurt Lewin).  It is a model that appears time and again.
