Experiential Learning is the future of learning: More than a hundred years ago, Hermann Ebbinghaus formulated the learning curve, which describes the relationship between memory and time.

In a nutshell, it says that, during a lecture, if your absorption rate is at 100 percent on day one, there is a 50-80 percent loss of learning from the second day onward, which is reduced to a retention rate of just 2-3 percent at the end of thirty days.

This theory is even more relevant in today’s world to the future of learning, where attention spans have come down and learning sometimes is reduced to 140 characters!

The Future of Learning

How then can ‘Experiential Learning’ help overcome this situation?

We believe there are eight reasons why experiential learning is the future of learning.

  1. Accelerates Learning
  2. Provides a Safe Learning Environment
  3. Bridges the Gap Between Theory and Practice
  4. Produces Demonstrable Mind-set Changes
  5. Increases Engagement Levels
  6. Delivers Exceptional Return on Investment (ROI)
  7. Provides Accurate Assessment Results
  8. Enables Personalised Learning
