Experiential Learning: Conceptualization and Definition

J. Duane Hoover


"Experiential learning is a highly qualitative concept, and cannot be received as a rigidly defined theory of learning. Carl Rogers makes a step towards a conceptualization of experiential learning by trying to define its essence: It has a quality of personal involvement — the whole-person in both his feeling and cognitive aspects being in the learning event. An important point in Rogers’ statement, as underlined, is his use of the term “whole-personâ€. Note that Rogers explains that the individual is involved in both feeling and cognitive aspects of the learning event. A third learning dimension of behavior can be added to the affective and cognitive dimensions."
