Learning through Experience
Experiential learning yields a sound return on the training investment resulting in benefits to all, says Stratsure.
You ask, Why point this out?
We retort, Good question!
“It is beyond a doubt that all our knowledge begins with experience”
Immanuel Kant believed this and its legitimacy has been demonstrated time and again. Rote learning connotes memorisation, which has its place, but when you are in the throes of a project, do you want to recite the steps to success or do you want to be driven victoriously by project management instinct?
Note: it is entirely viable for sources of quality information and learning to be more abstract than, say, a book.
Try something yourself and even if it damages the delicate boundaries of your comfort zone, you’ll gain more than just a list of dos and don’ts; demanding, accredited project management courses are ones that stick you in the driver’s seat and assign you a level of responsibility. Just like that, you’re deemed an asset worthy of investment. Your knowledge is immeasurable because of all its facets and your expertise will be invaluable to any employer.
Your qualification becomes a mere symbol – your performance is a better indication of the ways in which you embody your ongoing education. There are even certifications that are primarily based on experience in that an oral exam, which measures practical and theoretical competence, ensures thorough adoption of the Agile approach.
Take this as confirmation that Stratsure values experiential learning so much so that even the Stratsure team uses the experience gained from presenting courses to enrich the training material with the most successful techniques possible. Simply put, that’s why we’re the best.
The impetus for developing new concepts is provided by new experiences
Consider Education Theorist David Kolb’s four-stage learning cycle:
- Concrete Experience: a new experience is encountered or an existing one, reinterpreted.
- Reflective Observation: the experience is reflected on, as are the inconsistencies between the experience and one’s understanding.
- Abstract Conceptualisation: reflection leads to new ideas or modifications of existing abstract concepts.
- Active Experimentation: one applies findings and observes the results first-hand.
Repeat this cycle so that your skills are reinforced and primed for expansion. Your knowledge cannot go beyond your experience – yet we help you soar!
