Experiential Learning Guide (updated 2019)

Stevenson / Santl / Gilbertson

This field guide is a practical tool for adults working with youth in growing and developing through experiential learning. Youth think more, work harder, and end up learning more when they are engaged in an experiential learning process.

This guide prompts adults with questions through each of a five-step model:

  • 1) Experience
  • 2) Share
  • 3) Process
  • 4) Generalize
  • 5) Apply

This guide is formatted to take into the field. It fits in a shirt pocket, features laminated pages, a spiral binding, and quick, easy-to-use tabs. Youth workers, coaches, teachers, fair judges, mentors, etc., will find this an indispensable tool to have readily available in their work with youth.
