Basics of Experiential Learning

Experiential learning emphasizes hands-on experiences and active engagement in the learning process. It provides students with opportunities to apply theoretical knowledge in real-world contexts.


By integrating practical experiences, such as internships, fieldwork, and research projects, into the curriculum, experiential learning cultivates critical thinking, and problem-solving skills, and enhances students’ understanding of complex concepts. This approach fosters a deeper connection between theory and practice, empowers students to become active learners, and prepares them for the challenges of the professional world.
