This new book is a comprehensive and systematic statement of the theory of
experiential learning. It draws from the intellectual origins of experiential
learning in the works of John Dewey, Kurt Lewin, and Jean Piaget, describes the
process of experiential learning, and proposes a model of the underlying
structures of the learning process based on research in psychology, philosophy,
This structural model forms the basis of a typology of individual learning
styles and corresponding structures of knowledge in different academic
disciplines and professions.
The experiential learning model also includes a theory of adult development,
since learning is the process whereby development occurs. This developmental
perspective forms the basis for applications of experiential learning to
education, work and life-long learning.
