Experiential Learning

Knowledge is effectively created through experience. Knowledge results from the combination of grasping and transforming experience. It is distinct from rote or didactic learning, in which the learner plays a comparatively passive role. The University Grants Commission encourages the use of experiential learning stating that, “Learners must have ample scope to formulate their own queries and have multiple interpretations of knowledge through self-search and experiential learning.” To emphasise the importance of experiential learning, MLCU encourages the broad use of experiential strategies and tools, recommending that at least half of the learning time be spent in experiential learning.
