Experiential Teaching Methods

Learning Objective: Communication Skills, Experiential Learning Techniques

The training workshops helps teachers improve communication skills in their classrooms and effectively communicate to different kind of learners. The sessions empower teachers to bring life into their sessions with effective communication, and covers different models of communication and teaching.

The AVK(Audio, Video, Kinesthetic) concept of communication, aims at helping teachers to make their classrooms 'learner friendly'.

Facilitated by trained experientialists, teachers find themselves on the other side of the class and experientially develop creative and hands-on methods of teaching that enhance their methodology and style.

AVK & Experiential Learning

It has been proved that we process information via different “modalities” – Audio, Visual and Kinesthetic. Communication is effective when it uses a multi sensory approach to communication, rather than a one dimensional approach.

Teaching goes beyond communication, it engages students in a learning state and helps them learn how to learn. Using simple yet effective AVK tools like charts, mind-maps, theatre, music, etc. adds to the fun of learning and helps reach different kinds of learners(Multiple Intelligence).
