Kolb’s Cycle – The Experiential Learning Model (ELM) – The Learning Lights Podcast

I know that you aren’t really in a mood for a learning podcast…but hey, it’s only 12 minutes long, which means that it:

  • introduces and explains the 4-Stage Experiential Learning Model given by David Kolb,
  • illustrates it through two examples – one historical, the other contemporary, and then
  • provides tips that you can use for ensuring that you take your audience through each of the four stages…

All in 12-minutes!

So if you get a chance, do check out this episode of the Learning Lights Podcast – “The Kolb’s Cycle or The Experiential Learning Model.”

And to pique your curiosity…here’s the gentleman from the historical example 🙂

Merry Chrismas to all my readers and listeners. Thank you for being with me through these years. You have been my strength.

Stereotype – but do it the Right Way!

“Women just can’t drive!”
“Bosses are a P-i-A!”
“Artists are careless dressers.”
“Professors are absent-minded.”
“Women don’t code.”

All of the above statements have something in common. They are generalizations of characteristics for a particular group, and they may not apply to a small or large part of the group. When we make such generalizations, we stereotype. Unfortunately, negative stereotypes often cause pain – and yet, the human mind is programmed to generalize. In fact, generalization is an important part of the learning process.

I’ll be talking about Kolb’s Cycle in my Instructional Design Podcast Learning Lights, either tomorrow or the coming week, and the third stage in Kolb’s Cycle of Experiential Learning is “Abstract Conceptualization,” which comprises making generalizations, which are tested by the learner in the fourth stage.

That’s all for now. Don’t forget to tune into the Learning Lights podcast for tomorrow’s learning module.
