The Benefits of Experiential Learning

Educators know that a student learns more quickly and retains more information when the subject matter pertains to them personally, and doing makes learning extremely personal. As Sir Richard Branson says, "You don't learn to walk by following rules. You learn by doing, and by falling over."

Wikipedia defines experiential learning as "the process of learning through experience" and, more specifically, "learning through reflection on doing." The process of experiential learning involves both self-initiative and self-assessment as well as hands-on activity, so students and teachers alike can benefit from the many advantages and benefits of experiential learning activities in the classroom.
