of students from over 1600 colleges and
universities since 2000. The consistent
results of these data show that handson, integrative, and collaborative active
learning experiences lead to high
levels of student achievement and
personal development."
In addition, according to the University
of California at Berkeley's graduate
student instructor teaching guide,
"More complex thought processes are
more beneficial for learning because
they involve a greater number of neural
connections and more neurological
cross-talk.
Active
learning takes
advantage of this cross-talk, stimulating
a variety of areas of the brain and
promoting memory."

The Distracted
Learner
You may be reading this article on a
mobile device. At any given time, you
can click or swipe, and, in seconds, you
are working on something different,
playing a game or browsing the web.
We manage emails, text messages and
social media notifications with agile
reflexes, only to fall behind. We reply
in dedicated messaging apps, respond
to friend requests and dive into one cat
video - then wonder where the last 45
minutes went.

The future of learning is experiential for
two core reasons: Learning competes
with numerous potential distractions that
are only a click away, and the modern
learner desires to play an active role in
all areas of his or her lives.
Experiential learning refers to playing
an active role in learning as opposed to
being a passive consumer of the learning.
This type of learning can improve results;
according the University of Minnesota's
Center for Educational Innovation, "The
National Survey of Student Engagement
(NSSE) has examined the engagement
experiences of hundreds of thousands

Any time a learner walks into training
or logs into a virtual classroom, you
are fighting against a multitude of
distractions. You are contending with
numerous items on their to-do lists,
which they can access from the device
in their pocket or the keyboard in front
of them.
The notifications on learners' phones
are even more enticing when training
is passive. Effective training demand
action and involvement. Experiential
learning is a vital tool to ward off the
plethora of distractions vying for our
learners' attention.
According to LinkedIn's 2018 Workplace
Learning Report, getting employees to
make time for learning is the top challenge
for talent development professionals.
As a baseline, you have a prospective

learner who is inundated with work and
easily distracted. Experiential learning
provides the solution to engaging
learners and enabling them to absorb,
retain and apply learning.

Demanding Control
Less than 15 years ago, there was no
Uber, no Instagram and no Amazon
Prime. To say there has been a seismic
shift in the level of control, convenience
and personalization we now have
in our lives is an understatement of
epic proportions.
Now, think about the world 15 years
from now. Imagine your morning
routine, your weekday workflow and
your weekends. Do you believe you will
have less control over personalizing
and crafting those experiences?
Take this perspective into the world of
learning and development (L&D), and
you begin to understand why learners
today demand to be involved in the
experience. The youngest learners
grew up with Google, Alexa and Siri
for their queries and YouTube as their
instruction manuals.

and Give Learners

Take real-life scenarios and role-play
the challenges, the various approaches
a person could take and the potential
outcomes. Business schools have
used the case study method to great
success, and corporate L&D programs
