EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING ACTIVITIES
Mentoring and building relationships
“Learning happens in a LINE … Growth happens in a CIRCLE” – Andy Stanley
The traditional method of teaching and learning is through verbal repetition applied to memory and is usually provided in a classroom environment. Participants sit in rows and face the teacher, taking notes, and when allowed, asking questions.
If we aren’t sitting in circles talking, laughing, asking questions, and sharing our experiences, we are on the move – experiencing life together and learning at a deeper level because of our hands-on approach and active communication methods. Individuals unpack belief systems and learn to appreciate their own uniqueness as well as those around them.
We have discovered that sitting in rows learning something is good for the mind … but sometimes the heart is on another page altogether and facilitated, experiential activities reveal what is in the heart, so that both, the mind and the heart, may grow and heal.
A facilitated experience is more effective because it engages all of the senses in the learning process.
- Activity-based learning for experiential results
