Surprisingly: Hectic <--> Galumphing (Polarity)

Athena&Kolb

Athena, owl, spear, shield with learning cycle of David A. Kolb

Please join me for my presentation tomorrow at 3:45pm EST. I’ve made some changes in the original description.

Ha! I invented a new experiential learning tool, The Cycle of David A. Kolb’s Cycle. I originally figured I would give it a spin with colleagues and other interested persons at the same time I held down the presenter’s spot in the quarterly meeting of The Experiential Learning Community of Practice. This experiment was placed in the original description.

But, then I recalled I am an ENFP, and a Reflective Learner in Kolbian terms, and, I was able to withdraw the projection that suggested I could turn the self-selecting participants into ad hoc experimental subjects.

Not so fast, buster!

I’ve nevertheless opted for an energetic presentation, yet, I dialed the interactive aspect down so close to the null value that all that will be retained, interactively speaking, will be the discussion in the second half.

(Below are links to pdfs of the slides and the tool itself. These will be public for 72 hours.)

Generating Paradox. Overt and Covert Polarities in David A. Kolb’s Experiential Learning Cycle

Given the theoretical-conceptual architecture of Kolb’s Learning Cycle, fascinating yet obscured conceptual relations subsist within the dynamic move from the organismic systematic theory to its application as a theory-in-use/applied model.

This experiential presentation teases out some of those relations by leveraging both the explicit dialectical relations in the normative model, and co-existing, emergent, yet hidden polar relations discoverable elsewhere near bye.

In this peeling away of layers of the conceptual ‘onion,’ two gains are anticipated: one, the active learner will experience reasons for de-reifying applied aspects of learning style, and, two, the learner may be inspired to expand his or her own experiential learning model’s practical reach.

Expect 45 minutes of presentation and 45 minutes of discussion and comments and questions.
