... David Kolb en Experiential Learning: Experiences as the Source of Learning and Development (Kolb, 1984) perfecciona el trabajo de otros autores llevando el aprendizaje experiencial a su máximo nivel de influencia en la formación de adultos. En su libro cita como precursores a John Dewey, a Kurt Lewin y a Jean Piaget. ...
... El estilo de aprendizaje asimilativo enfatiza la conceptualización abstracta y la observación reflexiva. Su fuerte reside en el razonamiento inductivo y la habilidad de crear modelos teóricos asimilando observaciones dispares en una explicación integrada (Grochow citado por Kolb, 1984). Menos orientado a personas y más a ideas y conceptos abstractos. ...
... Su fortaleza se orienta a la resolución de problemas, toma de decisiones y la aplicación práctica de ideas. Se denomina convergente porque una persona con este estilo parece funcionar mejor en situaciones de inteligencia tradicional donde existe una sola respuesta correcta o una sola solución a un problema (Torrealba y Kolb citados por Kolb, 1984). El conocimiento se organiza de tal manera mediante razonamiento hipotético-deductivo que puede centrarse mejor en problemas específicos. ...

En entornos complejos e interdependientes donde el individuo se ve sobrepasado, o depende de otros para conseguir sus objetivos, es el equipo el que toma el relevo. Un nuevo enfoque de management se hace necesario para gestionar este contexto, permitiendo a la organización reaccionar con agilidad para superar posibles riesgos y aprovechar oportunidades potenciales. Hacer frente a la crisis, al cambio permanente, a la incertidumbre, es algo que las organizaciones deben de hacer de forma colectiva desde una óptica de equipo y con liderazgo distribuido. Cooplexity presenta un modelo de colaboración en complejidad que abarca rigurosamente tres niveles de trabajo, individual, grupal y organizacional. Toda la investigación se ha realizado basándose en los comportamientos observados en equipos de alta dirección, interactuando en Synergy, un curso de formación que, estructurado en torno a un simulador comportamental, coloca a los participantes en situaciones que van desde la incertidumbre hasta la complejidad. El lector encontrará en este libro las pautas para facilitar la emergencia de comportamientos colaborativos. Además, encontrará una serie de conclusiones que retan los conceptos clásicos del trabajo en equipo y del liderazgo tal y como se han entendido hasta la actualidad.
... In fact, there is, in our opinion, a high similarity between the DBTL cycle for engineering and Kolbs' Learning Cycle for learning through experience (Figure 1; Kolbs, 1984). Following a DBTL cycle in a synthetic biology course ensures activities for the completion of Kolb's learning cycle. ...
... Comparison of DBTL and Kolbs' Learning Cycle. Kolb's learning cycle (Kolbs, 1984) can be superimposed on the DBTL cycle to show how students complete both processes in tandem. In this schematic, the design phase of the DBTL cycle is linked with abstract conceptualisation of the biological problem and hypothesis generation, active experimentation and concrete experiences are obtained during the build and test phases where data is acquired and analysed, whilst learning from new data requires reflective observations and whether the data matches the predicted expectations. ...

Systems and Synthetic Biology are complementary fields emerging side-by-side into mainstream scientific research. Whilst systems biologists focus on understanding natural systems, synthetic biologists wish to modify, adapt and re-purpose biological systems towards certain desired goals, for example enhancing efficiency and robustness of desired biological traits. In both fields, data analysis, predictive mathematical modelling, experimental design, and controlled experimentation are crucial to obtain reproducible results and understand how applications can be scaled to larger systems and processes. As such, students from Life Sciences, Engineering, and Mathematics backgrounds must be taught fundamentals in biological systems, experimental techniques, mathematics, and data analysis/statistics. In addition, students must be trained for future multidisciplinary careers, where the interaction and communication between experimental and modelling researchers is fundamental. With the acceleration of technological developments (both computational and experimental) continuing unabated, educators need to bridge the increasing gap between fundamentally-required knowledge and skills that students need to pursue future academic or industrial research projects. In this paper, we will discuss how we have re-designed an introductory course in Systems and Synthetic Biology at Wageningen University and Research (Netherlands) that is targeted simultaneously to mathematical/computational students with an interest in biology and experimental methods, and to Life Science students interested in learning how biological systems can be mathematically analysed and modelled. The course highlights the links between fundamental methodologies and recently developed technologies within the Systems and Synthetic Biology fields. The course was re-designed for the 2021/22 academic year, we report that students from biology and biotechnology programmes graded their satisfaction of the course as 4.4 out of 5. We discuss how the course can act as a gateway to advanced courses in Systems Biology-oriented curricula (comprising: data infrastructure, modelling, and experimental synthetic biology), and towards future research projects.
... The process of experiential learning (Kolb, 1984) "occurs in a cycle of experience (gathering information about events), reflective observation (bringing events to a conscious level), abstract conceptualisation (making sense of events), and active experimentation (putting learning into practice)' (Ballantyne and Packer, 1995). Put another way, the four stages in the process link together to form the DATA model of Describe /Analyse /Theorise /Act (Peters, 1991). ...
... There seems to be general agreement in the literature that heterogenous teams which contain a balance of skills, perspectives, and styles, work best. A number of diagnostic tools is available to assist in obtaining such a balance (for example in Kolb, 1984;Honey andMumford, 1986, 1989;Margerison and McCann, 1991;Davis, 1992 ). All of the above are suitable for use as part of professional development and training for staff engaged in implementing teamwork, as well as for students. ...
... They draw on experiential learning theory (ELT) to illustrate the use of the learning space framework to show that education may be intelligently conducted upon the basis of experience (Dewey, 1986). According to Dewey (1986) and others, such as Kolb (1984) and Kolb and Kolb (2017), experiential learning theory is built on six propositions as spelt out by Kolb and Kolb (2005): ...
... This contrasts to the "transmission" model on which much current educational practice is based, where pre-existing fixed ideas are transmitted to the learner. Kolb (1984) defines learning within the context of ELT as the process by which knowledge is created through the transformation of experience, where knowledge results from the combination of "grasping and transforming experience." Kolb and Kolb (2005) demonstrate the traditional differences between art and management education by contrasting the text-driven approach of management education with the experiential learning process of demonstration-practice-production-critique that is used in most art classes. ...

Consulting for a startup company is an effective way for Master of Business Administration (MBA) students to learn about management consulting, and the ways and means of a startup company. This paper discusses the experience of an MBA startup project within the context of a core corporate finance course. The project requires the active engagement of several groups of stakeholders—MBA students, the university’s entrepreneurship incubator, a selection of startup companies, and the project’s academic collaborators. In line with the literature, we find that entrepreneurship education through student-startup collaboration contributes to the students’ entrepreneurial learning, and that the offering of an experiential learning course provides students with the opportunities to work with the external business community that yield positive benefits for students, startups, and the university. Our findings add to the experiential learning literature in business education and show that practice-based learning offers an effective learning experience for students whereby all stakeholders are exposed to various communities of practice that facilitate multiple streams of learning. We provide insights on experiential learning from the implementation of a “new” learning pedagogy for MBA students at an Asian institute of higher learning.
... Increasing globalisation has led more and more people to set out to study in foreign countries. Studying abroad is an experiential learning process which immerses the students in another culture (Kolb, 1984) and many researchers believe that studying abroad is an ideal way to improve one's Forum for Linguistic Studies (2022) Volume 4, Issue 1 intercultural competence (Deardorff, 2006;Watson and Wolfel, 2015). In recent years, quite a few scholars have used empirical research approaches to explore the development of students' ICC in study-abroad contexts (e.g., Behrnd and Porzelt, 2012;Gregersen-Herman, 2015;Czerwionka et al., 2015). ...

With increasing internationalization in higher education, more and more Chinese universities are providing students with exchange programs in cooperation with foreign universities. Hitherto, however, research about Chinese university students’ intercultural competence in a study-abroad context has been relatively rare. The present study, adopting a mixed-method research design, examines the development of Chinese students’ intercultural competence in a short-term study-abroad program, as well as the factors that might have a role to play in the process. It is found that the students made significant progress in intercultural competence after participating in the program and factors such as attitudes towards intercultural communication, cultural knowledge storage, English language proficiency and engagement in intercultural communication are important contributors to the development of intercultural competence in a short-term study-abroad context.
... In the other words, it can be said that Mangatoon can promote experiential learning, which is one of the teaching approaches where knowledge is acquired and increased through direct experience followed by reflection (Association of Experiential Education, 2012). Studies show that experiential learning, which allows the students to actively engage and involve in the learning process, could support the students to reach their maximum potential (Caulfield & Woods, 2013;Fenwick, 2000;Kolb, 2014). Moreover, digital media, like digital comics, promote students' motivation to finish the tasks (Henderson et al., 2017) especially when the teacher implements it in a collaborative way (Dallacqua, 2012). ...

Digital comics are proven to be an effective learning tool for both teachers and students. At the university level, this study was set out to find the views of second-semester students on the use of Mangatoon digital comics in reading instruction. A quantitative study was performed, involving second-semester students at the Universitas of Al Asyariah Mandar (n=30). This study found, that on average, students find Mangatoon helpful in assisting them in reading since it has practical features preserving their motivation. Based on the student's perception, the reading material presented in Mangatoon is easily understood, hence improvement in their reading skills can be maximised.
... First-hand experiences, and learning through doing, often result in deep understanding and long-lasting learning. The central role of experience in learning has also been postulated by John Dewey (1963), while Kolb (1984) articulated a theory of experiential learning that also postulated the inextricable relationship between experience and learning. According to Crowder (2014): ...

The School of Education at Trent University rests beside the Otonabee River, surrounded by green lawns, trees and wildlife, “located on the treaty and traditional territory of the Mississauga (Michi Saagiig) Anishnaabeg” (Trent University Michi Saagig Protocol Guide book, 2019, p. 4). The land plays an important role in shaping the learning within our program, where Indigenous knowledge and environmental activism are core themes across the Bachelor of Education. Founded in 2003, the School of Education has designed a professional, scholarly community upon this land, with an emphasis on multidisciplinary approaches to literacy, leadership, and social justice curricula. Given the mandate to expand into a two year program in 2014, we took the opportunity to enrich existing courses, to develop courses that meet contemporary local and global challenges (as well as to imagine those of the future), and to offer students more options for their path of study.

Dựa trên chu trình học tập trải nghiệm đề xuất bởi Kolb và kết quả nghiên cứu về các yếu tố thống kê, xác suất trong giáo dục Toán học cấp tiểu học, một kịch bản dạy học biểu đồ tranh đã được xây dựng. Trong kịch bản dạy học này, học sinh lớp 2 được khuyến khích tham gia những hoạt động trải nghiệm như điều tra, thu thập, phân loại, ghi chép, sắp xếp, biểu diễn, phân tích các số liệu thống kê. Kết quả thực nghiệm cho thấy, việc khai thác kinh nghiệm cá nhân và các hoạt động trải nghiệm có thể giúp tăng hiệu quả dạy học biểu đồ tranh nói riêng và các yếu tố thống kê, xác suất nói chung. / In the General Education Curriculum for Mathematics 2018, picture graphs and some elements of Statistics and Probability are suitable contents for organising practical and experiential activities. Based on the Process of Experiential Learning proposed by Kolb and the research results on elements of Statistics and Probability in elementary mathematics education, a teaching plan was designed. In this teaching plan, second graders are encouraged to participate in experiential activities such as investigating, collecting, classifying, organizing, recording, performing, and analysing statistical data. The experimental results show that the exploitation of personal experience and experiential activities can ameliorate teaching picture graphs and elements of Statistics and Probability.

Background Palliative care (PC) education should be an important part of both the graduate and undergraduate nursing curriculum. Nursing's philosophy of holistic care, which aims to improve the quality of life of patients and families, aligns with the primary objective of PC, positioning nurses to take the lead in expanding and improving PC delivery to all patients with a life-threatening diagnosis. The best way to facilitate this level of care is when staff nurses and advanced practice nurses work collaboratively. Aim To establish a new standard for nursing education that emphasises intradisciplinary care. Methods To fill the gap in PC education for nursing students, a dedicated elective PC class was developed for undergraduate and graduate students at a large midwestern University in the United States. Findings Through an interactive approach to learning, both groups were able to experience and more fully understand how they would work collaboratively with each other to provide high-quality PC. Conclusions Intradisciplinary PC education is an opportunity for students to learn the precepts of PC in an environment that will mirror their post-graduation practice environment.

Internationalization in the academic world allows transferring knowledge, thus enriching the cognitive abilities and transversal skills of students. This source of knowledge allows teachers to share experiences, increase work agreements between faculties and participate in other visions and learning models. This book encapsulates several international academic experiences between faculties, companies and institutions from 6 countries (Germany, France, Japan, Portugal, Spain and USA) and 15 organizations. In total, 21 participants (academics, students and experts) from various disciplines. The work is divided into chapters with individual or group narratives that recount the international experiences of professors and students who over the years have been collaborating with the Burgos University in different actions and commitments. All this reveals internationalization as a way of tacit evaluation and continuous improvement of university educational models.

A biometrical-genetical analysis of twin data to elucidate the determinants of variation in extraversion and its components, sociability and impulsiveness, revealed that both genetical and environmental factors contributed to variation in extraversion, to the variation and covariation of its component scales, and to the interaction between subjects and scales. A large environmental correlation between the scales suggested that environmental factors may predominate in determining the unitary nature of extraversion. The interaction between subjects and scales depended more on genetical factors, which suggests that the dual nature of extraversion has a strong genetical basis. A model assuming random mating, additive gene action, and specific environmental effects adequately describes the observed variation and covariation of sociability and impulsiveness. Possible evolutionary implications are discussed.
