Experience is a powerful teacher.  Research shows that adult learners filter new information through their own experiences. This is a challenge for any L&D professional.  Simply providing new information does not lead to sustained behavior change. Any investment in training must impact business outcomes through behavior change. 

Real behavior change requires knowledge, skill and conviction. All three must be present, working together.  Conviction links knowledge to skill and empowers new behavior. To have conviction adult learners must first successfully experience the new behavior either in real life or in a simulated environment. Experiential learning exposes growth opportunities in individuals and organizations in a way that creates sustained behavior change. Great experiential learning then bridges the gap between theory and practice building conviction for new behaviors. During this interactive learning session L&D professionals will learn:

  • Why experiential learning is critical to the success of adult learning
  • The brain science behind the power of experiential learning
  • The key models for experiential learning
  • The application of experiential learning to real L&D challenges
  • Connect with the power of experiential learning by participating in a live experience

Who should attend?

  • Corporate Trainers
  • Learning and Development Professionals
  • Curriculum Designers
  • Training and OD Managers
  • Learning Consultants
