A definition of what experiential education is

Methodological and Pedagogical Aspects

Experiential learning is distinct from rote or didactic learning, in which the learner plays a comparatively passive role. Experiential education is a philosophy that informs many methodologies, in which educators purposefully engage with learners in direct experience and focused reflection in order to increase knowledge, develop skills, clarify values, and develop people's capacity to contribute to their communities.
