Xperiential Education is a podcast which explores the different techniques of learning through doing. We take a look outside the classroom and interview some amazing experiential educators to find the most innovative ideas which are helping to shape people's lives and prepare them for an uncertain future in a rapidly changing world. However, as you'll see throughout the interviews the impact that experiential education can have on students is immense and this translates back in the classroom to help create life-long learning opportunities and build a resilience that's needed to be able to deal with endless change that life is now bringing. Around 500BC Confucius said: I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand. I've travelled far and wide throughout the world to interview some fascinating people who run some awesome experiential education programs that are having a real impact on the lives of those involved. Each week we'll chat with one of these educators to find out just how they're providing great opportunities for our next generation. Xperiential Education is a continuous search for the best practical teaching experiences possible to ensure students of all ages are getting the most out of their learning through doing. Hopefully you can take away some of these ideas and build them into your own educational programs. Artwork by Kris Stempel © 2018
