Experiential learning is a quickly growing trend in today’s business world. The current professional environment is fast-paced, with rapid turn-around times and quicker product and project lifecycles. More and more corporate trainers believe the best way to provide skills which employees can immediately use is by adding hands-on learning to enhance more traditional learning methods. Below are just a few advantages of experiential learning.
Speed of Results
Experiential learning can produce immediately actionable results faster than more classroom-based approaches to learning. The focus on applying new skills in the real world helps concepts move from theory to actuality.
The time saved in arming trainees with immediately applicable skills can translate directly to bottom line growth. Need I say more?
Experiential learning allows employees the opportunity to fail more quickly and more safely. Because these failures happen in a low-risk, off-line environment, they become an immediate enhancement to the learning cycle.
Specific, Targeted and Tailored
Every organization has its own individual training needs and goals. Experiential learning shines when it comes to tailoring training to specific and targeted learning objectives.
