Experiential Learning
Experiential learning is the process of learning through experience, and is more specifically defined as “learning through reflection on doing”. Hands-on learning is a form of experiential learning but does not necessarily involve students reflecting on their product. This process of better understanding ourselves by challenging our current understand of who we are and what we are capable of can be transformative. Some things in life cannot be fully understood without experiencing them ourselves.

My partners and I have opened a new facility called Kinetic Heights last November that will allow our community to use this learning model to improve human performance and facilitate individual personal growth. Act on your goals.

“The things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them” Aristotle
