Experiential learning is the process of learning through experiences and through the reflection of doing. Learning through experience can make education more hands-on, ultimately helping students better understand why the material is important. The benefits of experiential learning consist of teaching you real world experience, learning from mistakes, allowing for creativity, an opportunity for reflection, and preparing students for life. Here at Coker University, professors like Jim Wacker are leading the next generation of innovators and leaders into the real world.
