The modern education system is in dire need of reform. In Experiential Learning, Facemire provides key insights into how to change and break down the old systems and instill new ways of experiencing the educational process through student engagement.
What must be kept in constant mind are the benefits that cannot be measured: the greater sense of global awareness, the lifelong memories, the spiritual awakening. And these benefits should not be measured. Experiential learning can be a journey of intense personal worth, and this realm of benefit does not fall within the purview of ethical educational research. As one student put it, “You can’t get the experience any other way.”
Based on Facemire’s own research and experience, Experiential Learning provides a path forward for how to change our students’ lives for the better.
