  • Reviewing Adventures: Why and How? ~ by Roger Greenaway
    precisely because the medium of adventure can be so powerful that adventure educators have a responsibility to find out what kind of impact adventurous experiences are having And as educators it makes sense to assist and assess the learning experiences which are aroused by adventure Through reviewing facilitators demonstrate that they care about what participants experience value what participants have to say and are interested in the progress of each individual s learning and development Greenaway 1992 Reviewing energises the process of learning from experience Some of the reviewing methods that are possible after an adventure fit the dictionary definition of review to see view or examine again to look back on or over to survey to examine critically to revise Chambers s Dictionary But this definition does not convey the full range of methods that can be used to enhance learning and development after an adventure Review is a word that can sound cold clinical and critical as if it will produce a sudden and solemn change of climate following an intense or lively experience But the alternative terms for reviewing debriefing processing and reflection are really no better at suggesting that a review can be as lively and involving as the adventure that precedes it Reviewing may be justifiable as being a rewarding experience in itself But how essential is it to the process of learning from experience Is it always necessary to review an experience to learn from it Are there not plenty of adventurous experiences which are rewarding in themselves and in which the learning is self evident Is not the outdoor environment valued because it allows people to learn directly from the consequences of their actions Surely adventures can be meaningful enough without needing to make sense of them through reviews When learning has already been an integral part of the experience should reviewing not be seen as an optional feature These are important questions to ask because the experiences at the heart of adventure based learning can be substantially different in character to the kinds of experiences which feed other forms of experiential learning The importance of reviewing does seem to depend on the nature of the experience but to conclude that big experiences need less reviewing seems insensitive and irresponsible How then should the nature of the experience affect the nature of reviewing Is experiential learning theory such as that of Kolb 1984 really so versatile that it can be usefully applied to any experience from boiling an egg to climbing a mountain According to the authors of The Annual Handbook for Group Facilitators Pfeiffer and Jones 1983 it is axiomatic that the processing stages of the experiential learning cycle are even more important than the experiencing phase They even urge facilitators to be careful that the activity does not generate excess data Climbing a mountain or descending whitewater would surely be just the kind of experiences which would generate excess data There is clearly an enormous difference between a way of working

  • STORIES IN LEARNING: story telling in Experiential Education
    experiences if they are original and home grown They must CONNECT The value of activities in working with young people does not just depend on what is experienced during an activity It also depends on the kinds of the connections that are made with other experiences We continually come to know ourselves and our world by making connections between past present and future Threads and themes help us to draw separate experiences together into stories about ourselves and who we are This process stops once people come to depend too much on stories which have served them well in the past or which have helped them to survive When this happens people have effectively made up their minds about themselves and their world they have stopped learning from experience Young people s development is also held back if people around them are not letting them change or grow up they may have liked them too much as they used to be or they may have written them off perhaps labelling them as trouble maker slow learner or failure Young people may be unlucky enough to live in a world of ready made connections in which whatever they do gets explained by themselves or by others in terms of outdated stories or labels from the past Introducing new activities into this kind of world does not automatically lead to more hopeful and open ended stories young people may need some help to learn from these experiences and to make connections And others in their world may need some encouragement to change their past prejudices and allow young people to change and grow Extract from More Than Activities Not just any alternative stories Narrative therapists when initially faced with seemingly overwhelming thin conclusions and problem stories are interested in conversations that seek out alternative stories not just any alternative stories but stories that are identified by the person seeking counselling as stories by which they would like to live their lives The therapist is interested to seek out and create in conversations stories of identity that will assist people to break from the influence of the problems they are facing Just as various thin descriptions and conclusions can support and sustain problems alternative stories can reduce the influence of problems and create new possibilities for living Extract from Chapter 2 in What is narrative therapy by Alice Morgan You had to dream up new stories You see I was told stories we were all told stories as kids in Nigeria We had to tell stories that would keep one another interested and you weren t allowed to tell stories that everybody else knew You had to dream up new ones Ben Okri Read more from Ben Okri at http www brainyquote com quotes authors b ben okri html A story that is rarely told and rarely heard Martina s Story The forum on disability was for all ages I found that my interests and concerns weren t getting much of a voice
