Equipping 21st-century learners with skills of the 21st century necessitates an intense engagement by the educator; an engagement that goes far beyond the traditional pedagogical approaches.
Experiential Learning is not just about breaking the monotony of a class by taking up random activities or asking students to go, explore & interact with the world! It is about creating a lesson plan according to the details of Experiential Learning Theory modeled by Prof Kolb that enables students to go through the stages of Concrete Experience; Reflective Observation; Abstract Conceptualization and Active Experimentation. In such a form of learning, students learn to act, reflect, research, think, and apply. Moving through these four steps enables students to inculcate quintessential 21st-century skills of communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity.
As educators, we may understand the importance of Experiential Learning pedagogy but may feel restricted by the syllabus completion timelines, fulfilling the learning objectives, and conducting reliable assessments to measure the achievement of desired learning outcomes!
An immersive TWO Hour session on EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING PEDAGOGY – equipping 21st-century learners will give you an in-depth understanding of how to make experiential learning a way of comprehensive instruction, beginning from teaching and culminating into the assessment.
