2.15 Experiential Learning Cycle

Personalizing Facilitation Questions


Now that you are familiar with the Experiential Learning Cycle, its time to put it into action. This cycle may be used once during an entire presentation, or it may be used specifically with each objective or major workshop section.

In the CEU workshops I do, I use the cycle four times, one for each major section of the workshop and once at the end to summarize the entire workshop. It is a way to "open" a section, go through the materials, then "close" before opening a new section.

It is important to be flexible with this cycle, to "go with the flow", and yet to be sure to include all elements of the cycle. I have provided an example from one of my workshops below to give you an idea of how to complete this next Test.

Happiness is finishing a workshop and having your participants tell you what you just told them. That is the only way that you know that they know what you were talking about. Helping participants "take home and use" the information you provide is the true measure of your success in facilitating adult learning.

EXAMPLE:  One section of my Feel the Flow workshop is on Polarity Energy Balancing. Below I list the objectives and give examples of facilitation questions I prepare and use during this section.

EXAMPLE ExLC Worksheet
refer to ExCL "How" page to see relationships of this example to possible facilitation questions.

+ Content and Activities

5. Describe the relationship of the 5 Elements (Ether, Air, Fire, Water, and Earth) to the chakra centers and to body structures.
