“Experiential Education is a hands-on form of learning that begins with a concrete experience. After solving a problem, learners reflect on the process and are able to apply lessons more broadly to their lives.” From Association for Experiential Education
The Center for Experiential Learning at Boston University describes experiential learning as "an engaged learning process whereby students “learn by doing” and by reflecting on the experience. Experiential learning activities can include, but are not limited to, hands-on laboratory experiments, internships, practicums, field exercises, study abroad, undergraduate research and studio performances." I include experiences subsumed under interactive, immersive game and simulation activities as indicated in this guide.
