Framework for Experiential Learning

Implementing Experiential Learning in Formal Education: A Theoretical and Methodological Framework






Our project introduces a comprehensive theoretical and methodological framework for integrating experiential learning into formal education. This framework is designed to equip educators with innovative didactic methods, making their teaching more engaging and interactive for students. It also offers significant upskilling opportunities for teachers, providing them with advanced pedagogical approaches to enrich their professional practice throughout their careers.

The implementation of this framework positions schools at the forefront of educational innovation. By adopting the latest training approaches, schools can enhance their appeal to students, parents, and educators seeking a dynamic and innovative work environment. Adopting these practices paves the way for schools to be recognised as “model schools” or attain the status of “experimental schools” in the future.

At the heart of this initiative is the development of a robust theoretical and methodological foundation, laying the groundwork for the practical application of experiential learning in school settings. This foundation is crucial before delving into lesson planning and curriculum design specifics.

Target Audience:

  • School Teachers: Addressing the need for novel teaching methods and continuous professional development.
  • School Principals: Providing new training approaches to foster an attractive and innovative learning environment.
  • Other Education Stakeholders: Catering to those interested in integrating non-formal learning practices into formal education settings.

Our methodological framework is informed by the latest advancements in experiential learning theory, particularly the Experiential Learning Cycle. It encompasses cutting-edge trends in experiential learning, offering a diverse range of practical activities and techniques. This framework serves as a guide for educational program and curriculum designers, enabling them to create formal education programs that are in harmony with the principles of experiential learning.

Through this initiative, we aim to transform the landscape of formal education, making it more dynamic, engaging, and responsive to the evolving needs of students and educators alike.
