Experiential Learning

"Tell me and I'll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I'll understand" ~Chinese Proverb

The Association for Experiential Education (AEE) defines experiential education as follows:

Experiential education is a philosophy that informs many methodologies in which educators purposefully engage with learners in direct experience and focused reflection in order to increase knowledge, develop skills, clarify values, and develop people’s capacity to contribute to their communities.
