Experiential learning is the process of learning through experience, and is more specifically defined as “learning through reflection on doing”.
We don’t come in and present to your students or give them a talk or lecture. Our workshops start with the students being placed in engaging, interactive, fun scenarios. The students are then asked to work together to come up with a way to approach the situation that will lead to a successful outcome.
It was really enjoyable and educational!
I didn’t realise that we’d be able to learn this stuff in a fun way!
The debrief, as it explained where we went wrong and we could clearly see how we could improve in real situations.
Not only did I learn about working in teams, I got to work with people in my year I wouldn’t normally work with.
As per the Transition Year guidelines for schools, Transition Year “provides a bridge to help students make the transition from a highly-structured environment to one where they will take greater responsibility for their own learning and decision making. Pupils will participate in learning strategies which are active and experiential and which help them to develop a range of transferable critical thinking and creative problem-solving skills.” This is our specialty.
