Experiential Learning Platforms in India

Experiential Learning is an engaged learning process whereby students "learn by doing" and by reflecting on the experience. The word 'Experiential' is derived from 'Experience' thus it involves learning from experience.

The theory of Experiential Learning was proposed by educational theorist David Kolb who was influenced by the work of other theorists including John Dewey (whose work on democracy influenced Dr. B.R. Ambedkar), Kurt Lewin, and Jean Piaget.

According to David Kolb, Experiential learning can be defined as "the process whereby knowledge is created through the transformation of experience. Knowledge results from the combinations of grasping and transforming the experience."
