How is Experienced-Based Learning Useful for Team Building?
It is all about practice and mastery: Can you dance? Do you write amazing code? Can you proficiently play a musical instrument? How did you learn that skill? Through Hands-on practice. It is not enough to have someone stand in front of you, telling you about a thing. Seeing is better than hearing, knowing is better than seeing, and doing is better than knowing. To be able to apply the knowledge in practice, that is our objective. The process of developing skills via experience is embedded within us all. Here at Adventura, we actively work to provide people with the transition from knowing to applying.
How do we get from the typical work-mode to entering practice-mode? This questions is key in how we make the most of team building time investment We are here to create this shift in focus. We utilize experience-based learning to do this.
