It’s widely accepted that the more senior and experienced the individual, the less they learn from formal training. Yet companies continue to spend considerable sums on this form of development. We also know that if you ask a person for their most powerful learning experience, they would cite a time when they faced a really challenging situation; one that took them out of their comfort zone and stretched them both intellectually and emotionally.
The following slideshow is Formicio’s point of view on experiential learning. It discusses the different forms of experiential learning, the principles of effective experiential learning, the role of the learning guide and the conditions for learning success. The point of view has developed and evolved over many years. We hope you will find it interesting and helpful.
I welcome your thoughts.
