Collaborative Institutions for Experiential Learning

Experiential Learning Theory (ELT) provides a holistic model of the learning process and a multilinear model of adult development, both of which are consistent with what we know about how people learn, grow, and develop. Experiential learning theory defines learning as the process whereby knowledge, skills, and values are created through the transformation of experience. Knowledge results from the combination of grasping and transforming experience. It is distinct from rote and 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 emphasize 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.


MLCU is privileged to have many partners in various corporate, service and professional sectors serving society with high commitment and expertise in different parts of the country. These organizations provide MLCU students with invaluable exposure and experience.
