Processing the Experience by John L. Luckner and Reldan Nadler, Kendall/Hunt Publishing Company, Provides important insight into making TLC a truly “hands-on learning experience.” The following Principles of Experiential Learning are excerpted from page 4. Experiential Learning
Experiential Learning from Luckner and Nadler The learner is a participant rather than a spectator in learning. Experiential learning occurs when carefully chosen experiences are supported by reflection, critical analysis, and synthesis. Learning must have present as well as future relevance for learners and the society in which they will participate.
The results of the learning are personal and form the basis for future experiences and learning. Relationships are developed: learner to self, learner to others, and learner to the world at large. Individuals increase their awareness of how personal values and meanings influence their perceptions of choices of action. Experiential Learning from Luckner and Nadler
Experiential Learning from Luckner and Nadler Educator’s primary roles include: structuring appropriate experiences, posing problems, setting boundaries, supporting learners, insuring physical and emotional safety, and facilitating the learning process. Educator’s strive to be aware of their biases, judgments, and preconceptions and how they influence the learner. Educators must recognize and encourage spontaneous opportunities for learning.
