Experiential Learning Environments

Experiential Learning, as its name implies, is a form of learning in which people gain knowledge and expertise in a field or topic by doing, rather than reading about it. This means that instead of depending on reading and researching a subject, their education is dependent on them immersing themselves in the matter.

This form of learning has proven to yield optimum results. For this reason, businesses must provide their employees with appropriate environments to benefit from experiential learning as part of their corporate training initiatives. Here are the most important benefits of doing so.

Improve Results

Studies have shown that “learning by doing” yields higher returns on investment than traditional training methods. This is because critical thinking, decision-making and problem-solving skills are implemented in the learning process. By bridging the gap between theory and practice, experiential learning environments create efficient means for learning, yielding enhanced results.

Increase Engagement

Regardless of the level of creativity implemented into traditional learning programs, it is still very likely that learners can lose focus and stop engaging with the content. However, experiential learning environments lock in the learners’ concentration. Instead of listening to lectures, learners are “getting their hands dirty” and accomplishing goals.

Immediately Apply Knowledge

In experiential learning environments, learners absorb information through doing. This “hands on” approach makes the learning material real for the learners and allows them to gain a deeper understanding of the content. These learners are a step ahead, as they already have experience and are able to immediately apply their knowledge to solve problems and perform tasks.

Access to Real-Time Feedback

We all know that feedback is an essential part of the learning process. As learners and pioneers in the fields we study, it is an invaluable privilege to get constructive criticism, or even approval, from our instructors. In experiential learning environments, instructors monitor how their students are applying their knowledge and give feedback in real time.

Experience Less Expensive Consequences

Although no one likes mistakes, there is no denying that they occur. Thus, it is up to innovative learning solutions to minimize the consequences that they can have. In experiential learning environments, learners make their mistakes while learning, as opposed to coming across them for the first time when applying their knowledge independently. This diminishes the potential damage that errors can cause.

At CoreAxis, our goal is to ensure that our clients have the most effective and efficient tools to guarantee they reach their goals. To that end, we provide custom learning solutions that immerse their employees in the content and give them real-life experience while learning.
