All rights reserved.12 Kolb Learning Theory Concrete and Abstract Perceivers Concrete Perceivers absorb information through direct experience—addressed by the “Activity” portion of the learning cycle. Abstract Perceivers take in information through analysis, observation, and thinking—addressed in the “Generalize” phase. Active and Reflective Processors Active Processors make sense of an experience by immediately using the new information—addressed in the “Application” phase. Reflective Processors make sense of an experience by reflecting and thinking about it—addressed in the “Analyze” phase.
FacilitatorU.com. All rights reserved.13 Activity Considerations Develop clear learning objectives/outcomes. Design activities to maximize participation. Design or choose activities to create some tension or discomfort. Prepare appropriate debriefing questions. Prepare relevant teaching content. Allow space for participants to provide content.
FacilitatorU.com. All rights reserved.14 Debrief Debrief according to activity objectives and learning goals. Move from general to move specific while staying on course. Push participants a little, but not too much. Use FAT as a questioning guide: Feelings, Actions, Thoughts. Keep open-ended to bring out subtle awareness, then move into next phase.
FacilitatorU.com. All rights reserved.15 Lessons Learned The same activity can be repeated to “apply” learning from first time around. Different objectives can be met by the same activity based on how the debrief and learning phases are structured. There may be a tendency to skimp on the debrief. Take enough time for the debrief and other phases; this is where most learning occurs.
