Is Experience the Best Teacher?
Keeton, Morris
Innovation Abstracts, v5 n11 Apr 8 1983
The best learning results from experiential learning, the interplay between theory and experience. In experiential learning, the student is in direct touch with the realities being studied. It involves not merely undergoing the experience, but also doing something with the phenomenon. Theories of experiential learning include: (1) learning how to do a task or play a role; (2) reformulating knowledge already learned; and (3) developing affective and cognitive insights. The challenge in experiential education is to find ways to combine the theoretical and experiential components of learning programs. (DC)
