Experiential Learning

Experience as the Source of Learning and Development, 2nd Edition

David A. Kolb’s definitive statement of Experiential Learning Theory (ELT), Experiential Learning, Second Edition, builds on intellectual origins defined by figures such as William James, John Dewey, Kurt Lewin, Jean Piaget, and L. S. Vygotsky, while also reflecting three full decades of research and practice since the classic first edition.

This edition reviews recent applications of experiential learning, updates Kolb’s framework for today’s organizational and educational landscape, and features new examples in the field and classroom. It will be valuable for anyone who wants to improve learning anywhere: in higher education, training, organizational development, lifelong learning environments, and online.
