Experiential Learning Facilitation

MOE’s consolidation of activities under SDE programmes may be diverse but the standard pedagogy among all of them is Experiential Learning.

Hence, it is critical to help and develop learners’ ability to reflect and learn from experiences. It is not reflection and learning that is difficult but in everything else before. This means looking into multiple dimensions such as activity design, framing of experiences, and raising awareness. Therefore, we can create and facilitate authentic learning experiences for the learners.

We offer 3 workshops to support you in Experiential Learning Facilitation:
Reflection Made Easy

Reflection can be easy if you take care of the experience.

When a person comes out of ‘flow’ experience, they would naturally want to talk. Therefore, knowing how to identify and design ‘flow’ experiences is crucial for educators. This will facilitate reflection according to CCE outcomes. 

In this hands-on workshop, we will dive deep into the uniqueness of SDEs and how educators can guide the learning of these experiences via 3 key points below.  

What I’ll Take-Away

  • Understand the importance of pivoting from learning to sharing
  • Identify optimal flow and peak experiences of learners
  • Expose to sequence of questioning to support in reflection
Teachable Moments

An unplanned opportunity, if grasped, provides an opportunity for learning to occur.

One of the uniqueness of Experiential Learning is the emergence of unplanned learning:commonly known as ‘teachable moments’. Such moments happen in both structured and unstructured Experiential Learning. Having the ability to identify these moments, share observations, and facilitate reflection will enhance the learning opportunity.

In this hands-on workshop, you will learn how to observe for teachable moments to support learners. Another key component is deepening the understanding of awareness and leveraging it to support behavioral changes.

What I’ll Take-Away

  • Harness the ability to observe and identify teachable moments
  • Share and state observations neutrally
  • Expose to 4A model to conduct reflection (Aware, Acknowledge, Accept, Action) during teachable moments
Programme for Active Learning (PAL) Facilitation

Reduce “block teaching” and start involving our young learners in the reflection process.

With PAL being centred on developing Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) competencies, it is essential to shift from teaching into facilitation.

In this hands-on workshop, you will experience a PAL lesson that is facilitative in nature. You will also have the opportunity to unpack and understand the key components that promote facilitation in PAL lessons.

What I’ll Take-Away

  • Expose to structures for eliciting responses and promoting learning
  • Build and strengthen facilitation competencies in facilitating PAL lessons
  • Utilise essential questions – a sweet spot between specific or general questions that supports reflection and learning
  • Identify opportunities to raise awareness – Before, During, and After the lesson
