Experiential Learning

Jay Kornnatt

Managing Director of

Transformagent Academy

Text, audio and visuals alone is not enough to change behaviour or adopt a new skill. 

Researchers have found that experiences have a greater impact in skills development and behaviour change. These experiences can be obtained through simulation, deep practice, on-the-job and many more.

Experiential learning is a process through which students develop knowledge, skills, and values from direct experiences outside a traditional academic setting. It can encompass a wide variety of work experiences, such as internships, on-the-job, research and many more.

If we want to ensure our students or workforce effectively adopt a new skill or behaviour, how can we shape the learning experience? What are the important elements of designing an effective experiential learning?
