This chapter takes a look at experiential learning. The central idea of “experiential learning,” as the term suggests, is the process of learning through experience. The “learning” part requires an additional element: reflection. Thus, a fuller concept of experiential learning includes reflection about the learning experiences in which students participate. The teacher's responsibility is to create worthwhile educational experiences so that students will have something of value on which to reflect. Like active learning, experiential learning involves many different forms of student engagement. Experiential learning is learning by doing. In this kind of hands-on learning, students assume responsibility for their learning, taking control of both the learning experience and their reflection on it.

Keywords:   experiential learning, active learning, reflection, learning experiences, educational experiences, student engagement, hands-on learning, mentoring
