  • Food for Thought for Facilitators and Experiential Educators
    action in our lives Experiential knowing is through direct face to face encounter with person place or thing it is knowing through empathy and resonance and is almost impossible to put into words Presentational knowing emerges from experiential knowing and provides its first expression through forms of imagery such as poetry and story drawing movement sculpture dance and so on Propositional knowing about something is knowing through ideas and theories and is expressed in abstract language or mathematics Practical knowing is knowing how to do something and is expressed in a skill knack or competence Source After Heron 1971 and Reason 1988 Reason P 2001 Learning and Change Through Action Research in Henry J Ed Creative Management The Open University Business School in association with Sage Publications London The Dilemma To laugh is to risk appearing a fool To weep is to risk appearing sentimental To reach out for another is to risk involvement To expose feelings is to risk rejection To place your dreams before the crowd is to risk ridicule To love is to risk not being loved in return To go forward in the face of overwhelming odds is to risk failure But risks must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing The person who risks nothing does nothing has nothing is nothing He may avoid suffering and sorrow but he cannot learn feel change grow or love Chained by his certitudes he is a slave He has forfeited his freedom Only a person who takes risks is free Janet Rand In Search of Respectable Adventure on this site explores how risk assists growth Freedom to Learn When I have been able to transform a group and here I mean all of the members of a group myself included into a community of learners then the excitement has been almost beyond belief To free curiosity to permit individuals to go charging off in new directions dictated by their own interests to unleash the sense of enquiry to open everything to questioning and exploration to recognise that everything is in the process of change here is an experience I can never forget Carl Rogers 1969 Freedom to Learn Improving the Learning Climate Reviewing is not simply a process for extracting identifiable learning from an experience And reviewing is nothing like a clinical operation in which the surgeon extracts the learning from an anaesthetised patient Reviewing is at it s best a more cooperative and creative process in which participants are alive to learning opportunities and encourage and support each other s learning In other words effective reviewing in a group setting creates a community that thrives on learning while also providing tools for homing in on specific learning points This page adapted from Playback presents the case for this more strategic and more empowering use of reviewing processes Learning and development are more likely to happen if the learning climate is responsive to individuals developmental needs A number of developmental needs are listed

  • Active Reviewing ~ article by Roger Greenaway
    can swap roles with each other leading towards criticism becoming more constructive Reviewing By Doing active testing of theories during a review Course members arrive with theories about what a good manager or a good team member does They record their theories for display and after doing some group tasks and receiving feedback from observers the group considers whether to adjust the theory and or their practice Groups also develop theories about themselves and each activity may put such theories to the test Testing theories is a sound process but groups can sometimes delude themselves Reviewing can be a time for examining any of these theories whether about managing or about teamwork or about the nature and behaviour of their own group Trainers should be alert to opportunities for testing out theories especially suspect ones EXCUSES provides an example of this EXCUSES A group which was highly disorganised following their arrival at a remote and basic mountain hut came up with a theory about themselves during their initial review in the hut This went along the lines of it was dark we d never been there before we were tired we would manage it much better another time or in a different new situation After their return to the training centre their disorganised arrival at the hut was reviewed for a second time This time the trainer darkened the room and supplied the group with three torches after scattering information about the hut s resources around the room on bits of paper This simulation allowed the group a second attempt to organise themselves on arrival at the hut It was just as much of a shambles The second active review had exposed the inadequacy of the initial all talk review and brought out a more accurate explanation of the group s disorganisation Newsround Extra sharing individual experience through action This is particularly useful where a group has been operating in smaller units or comes together to review their individual experiences In these situations where there is a lot of news to exchange verbal review methods can be particularly time consuming Levels of concentration and interest may be low when the time comes round for the last people in the group to tell their stories One way of keeping people involved is to invite people to act out the story as it is told One person acts or mimes the part of the narrator while others take the parts of any animate or inanimate objects which turn up in the narrative This can become exhausting and chaotic It can become so physically involving that rather than bringing the story alive the story gets lost as the group concentrate on the challenge of staging it More time consuming but more controllable if desired is to give individuals time to prepare performances in subgroups Each performance can be required to include for example 2 high points 2 low points 2 interesting points and 2 learning points Sharing work experience through action Individuals can
