Experiential learning is more than merely ‘learning by doing’. Rather, it is a philosophy which informs many methodological approaches to teaching and learning. There are two commonalities within experiential education: that learners are engaged with direct experiences and that periods of focused reflection are contained within the learning cycle. Experiential education isn’t merely mountain-climbing or orienteering, nor is it limited to model-making or practical placements. The scope of experiential activities is wide ranging and educators should consider the extension of classic case studies and problem-solving activities into authentic learning experiences such as collaborating on business problems with organisations, assisting charities and designing products.
