From: Volume 7, Issue 1: Spring 2010, Experiential Learning Pages 118-143

Abstract

This article explores the educational concept of experiential learning, particularly in terms of service learning and situated learning. It proposes an alternative definition of an academic learning community, namely the role of primary social relationships as God-given contexts for learning. It concludes with practical application of the enormous potential for accomplishment of educational objectives through situated learning.
