In business, traditional lecture-style training - sometimes referred to as ‘chalk-and-talk’ - is useful but how much information is absorbed?
This is where experiential learning comes into play.
Experiential learning makes a lasting impression by helping an individual learn from direct experience.
For example, rather than being told how to communicate or lead a group effectively, imagine building and testing an air-powered rocket with colleagues and actually putting these skills into practice?
As one of the largest dedicated experiential learning centres in the UK, Lane End Conference Centre, Buckinghamshire offers a variety of cerebral, physical and challenge based activities, each designed to enhance specific workplace skills.
“We believe the best lessons are those you learn from experience,” says Heni Fourie Sales and Marketing Manager at Lane End.
“Experiential learning techniques are a really ‘hands on’ powerful way to help individuals understand what they are learning about and how they will go about it in day-to-day life.”
Lane End provides experiential learning facilities for a diverse range of businesses and teaching institutions, from the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) to top construction companies.
Each experiential learning programme is aligned to a company’s specific learning objectives – from implementing an entire leadership course, to delivering a few experiential learning activities as part of a larger initiative.
Lane End Conference Centre also run a range invigorating outdoor activities designed to encourage team working. These include human football, air rifle scrabble, Segway racing and more.
If you’re worried your training is going in one ear and out the other, our experiential learning specialists can deliver the results you want.
