DESCRIPTION

As employees spend more and more time in workplace training, corporations are seeking creative ways to develop and motivate their staff. Beard and Wilson provide a solid and easy-to-follow background into the concepts of experiential, or activity-based, learning and highlight successful techniques, from outdoor team-building to office-based activities.
 
Experiential Learning offers educators, trainers and coaches the skills that can be successfully applied to a variety of settings including management education, corporate training, team-building, youth-development work, counseling and therapy, schools and higher education and special needs training. With the Learning Combination Lock model, brought to life with hundreds of examples from around the world, the authors illustrate a range of factors that can be altered to enhance the learning experience including: experience and intelligence; facilitation, good practice and ethics; learning environments; experiential learning activities; and working with the senses and emotions.

This edition has been completely updated and includes a new chapter on Sensory Intelligence, more information on ways the brain works (emotional thinking, rational processing, meditative sensorial experiences), and guidance on coaching skills.
