Experiential learning

Experiential learning is a process of transformation when, as a result of experience, one is inspired to apply in life, what emerges as a revelation or self-discovery.

The Kolb Cycle:
-we have an experience
-(reflection) think about it
-(recording) talk about it or write it
-(processing) analyse experience
-leading to another experience where we may apply the learning.

Therefore it becomes a spiral of learning. This can also be described as the
whole learning wheel:

-from goal setting
-to experimenting and observing
-to reviewing
-finally action planning

Experiential learning in outbound environment:

Using outdoors as a classroom is interesting, fascinating and more importantly effective. Leaving

the comfort zone of our home and work place and travel to a new, open place in a natural environment with minimum comforts.
