Leveraging Experiential Learning Techniques for Transfer
Furman, Nate; Sibthorp, Jim
New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education, n137 p17-26 Spr 2013
Experiential learning techniques can be helpful in fostering learning transfer. Techniques such as project-based learning, reflective learning, and cooperative learning provide authentic platforms for developing rich learning experiences. In contrast to more didactic forms of instruction, experiential learning techniques foster a depth of learning and cognitive recall necessary for transfer. This chapter describes how experiential learning techniques can be used to encourage transfer of learning. First, the authors describe several of the key characteristics of experiential education and experiential learning. Second, they briefly summarize literature on learning transfer and experiential learning techniques. Third, they provide three examples of how experiential techniques may be integrated into adult education to optimize transfer in adult learning contexts. By the conclusion of the chapter, the reader will have a clear sense of how experiential techniques may be leveraged for transfer with adult learners. (Contains 1 table.)
