maple leaf 3-1. Experimental Learning Theory

Dr. David Kolb says four modes of learning must occur if learning:

four modes of learning

Concrete Experiences - being involved in a situation, doing something
Reflective Observing - looking at an experience and thinking about it
Abstract Concept-Making - forming theories about why an experience happened the way it did
Active Experimenting - testing a theory by making a plan and following it

To fully learn something, all modes must be completed.
