a workshop with Roger Greenaway
Rationale"Experiential Education is a process through which a learner constructs knowledge, skill, and value from direct experiences."
This is the definition of "Experiential Education" approved by AEE (The Association for Experiential Education). It places the creativity of learners at the heart of the process.
It also supports the presenter's belief that the reviewing of experience is a creative process - whether the review is an informal verbal one or an imaginative process inspired by the creative arts.
This workshop actively explores how we can use reviewing to help learners to respond creatively and constructively to their experiences. Our chances of success increase if we are ourselves creative in how we go about this challenge.
AimsThis workshop will explore and develop reviewing skills for anyone who wishes to involve learners more fully and creatively in the reviewing of adventures and other experiences.
Participants will gain the ability to use a more dynamic and versatile tool kit for reviewing experiences, as well as the creativity to adapt and develop methods to enhance their own practice.
ContentThis workshop will include:
MethodThe two days should be involving, enjoyable, and creative and will be based on the principles of experience-based learning. There will be opportunities to try out ideas that are presented or developed in the course of the workshop. This core process will be supported by inputs, handouts, exercises and discussion.
