PRACTICE PAPER: Experiential Learning

The term ‘experiential learning’ is often mistakenly used to describe any learning experience that involves participatory activities. Yet, this misconception often fails to include real-world application of learning and therefore can fall short of lasting behavioural change.

The learning provides other youth and education development practitioners with a resource that can be used to strengthen youth and behavior change programmes through the incorporation of the experiential learning theory.
