Differences Between Traditional Learning and Experiential Learning

Traditional learning for adults has been used for decades with some minor changes introduced during the period. There are significant differences between this form of training and education and experiential or accelerated learning.

In both approaches, learning outcomes are the ultimate goal. Some major differences are that the target audience (individual[s] vs. group [s}) and the learning strategies applied to the learning environment during a training session. Additionally, experiential learning environments are more interactive and engaging for learners and use a variety of learning strategies in order to address multiple learning styles.

For hundreds of approaches for actively engaging learners through experiential learning (accelerated learning) techniques, designing creative training environments which incorporate brain-based learning research, and relating training initiatives to adult learning theory, get copies of The Creative Training Idea Book: Inspired Tips and Techniques for Engaging and Effective Learning and Energize Your Training: Tips and Techniques To Engage Learners.

Accelerated Learning Techniques Can Lead Adult Learners to Increased Transfer of Training by The Creative Trainer – Robert W. Lucas, Awarding Winning Author

By actively engaging adult learners in the classroom and providing an opportunity for them to become active participants, you set up an environment where their brain neurons are stimulated. Through the use of adult learning techniques, you potentially allow your learner’s brains to more effectively gain, retain, recall, and use what they experience (transfer of training).
