The Development of an Experiential Approach to Learning in the Community College.
Emerson, George
In order to develop an experiential learning curriculum for interdisciplinary social sciences that would take into account the needs and interests of students at Miami-Dade Community College, a review of the literature was undertaken in the following areas: philosophy and experiential learning theory; the role of the teacher; student characteristics as determinants of learning success; student characteristics important to the experiential instructor; the methods and conditions of learning preferred by community college students; learning styles and teaching styles; and the use of behavioral objectives, individual instruction, and evaluation. Principal theorists included were John Dewey, James S. Coleman, R. M. Kolb, and Ron Stradsklev. Student characteristics were drawn from Miami-Dade institutional research. A proposed model for classroom teaching and evaluation concludes the study. An extensive bibliography and the proposed objectives and learning activities for an interdisciplinary social sciences course are appended. (RT)
