Experiential Learning

Experiential learning is an opportunity for students to engage in hands-on, real-world learning that helps them develop their understanding of the curriculum and prepare for the jobs of today and tomorrow.


The Experiential Learning Cycle 

Participating in the Experiential Learning Cycle allows students to be at the centre of their learning.  They are able to make meaningful and authentic connections to the curriculum and the world around them.   


When students participate in an experience they are immersed in the experience acknowledging what they are doing, thinking, and feeling.  


Students think about the experience and identify what they have learned about themselves, other people, the world, their opportunities, or the subject of study.


Describes how their learning stimulates further inquiry and how it  has or may influence decisions, opinions, goals and plans for  future experiences.
