The notion of experiential education, or learning by doing, has a lengthy history. Experiential education is a philosophy of education that focuses on the transactive process between teacher and student involved in direct experience with the learning environment and content. When education is said to be experiential, this means that it is structured in a way that allows the learner to explore the phenomenon under study, that is, to form a direct relationship with the subject matter, rather than merely reading about the phenomenon or encountering it indirectly. An experiential educator’s role is to organize and facilitate direct experiences of phenomenon under the assumption that this will lead to meaningful and long-lasting, learning. Experiential educators operate under the assumption that educational goals can be effectively met by allowing the character of the learner’s educational experience to influence the educational process.
