Unleash your potential as a learner, an educator, a trainer, a coach and a leader by making the Kolb Experiential Learning process work for all aspects of your life and work.

Learn­ing from expe­ri­ence is at the core of per­for­mance improve­ment, learn­ing and devel­op­ment. In the chal­leng­ing glob­al envi­ron­ment, the abil­i­ty to change and to cre­ate, acquire and apply new knowl­edge has become crit­i­cal to suc­cess. Indi­vid­u­als, teams and orga­ni­za­tions that make learn­ing explic­it will build the capac­i­ty to adapt and thrive in uncer­tain times.

The Expe­ri­en­tial Learn­ing Cer­tifi­cate Pro­gram is tar­get­ed to prac­ti­tion­ers and schol­ars who wish to deep­en their knowl­edge and prac­tice of expe­ri­en­tial learn­ing. The pro­gram is based on the prin­ci­ples and prac­tices of David Kolb’s Expe­ri­en­tial Learn­ing The­o­ry, an inte­grat­ed, holis­tic, prac­ti­cal sys­tem for address­ing the learn­ing and devel­op­ment chal­lenges of the 21st century.

The Expe­ri­en­tial Learn­ing Cer­tifi­cate Pro­gram (Lev­el I) is a unique small-group online learn­ing expe­ri­ence designed to sup­port par­tic­i­pants’ self-dis­cov­ery and self-devel­op­ment as expe­ri­en­tial learn­ers and edu­ca­tors, using the prin­ci­ples of expe­ri­en­tial learning.

Learning Outcomes

Edu­ca­tors who par­tic­i­pate in the pro­gram can expect to leave with an under­stand­ing of the prin­ci­ples of expe­ri­en­tial learn­ing that will empow­er them to accom­plish the following:

  • Prac­tice using the learn­ing cycle for effec­tive­ness in learn­ing and life.
  • Cre­ate learn­ing spaces that enhance per­for­mance, learn­ing and development.
  • Mon­i­tor one’s own learn­ing pref­er­ences and rec­og­nize oth­ers’ preferences.
  • Build learn­ing flex­i­bil­i­ty to sup­port adapt­abil­i­ty and change.
  • Apply expe­ri­en­tial learn­ing to enhance team effectiveness.
  • Devel­op capa­bil­i­ty in four edu­ca­tor roles that pro­mote full-cycle learning.
  • Design and eval­u­ate effec­tive expe­ri­en­tial exercises.
  • Devel­op exper­tise and sus­tain life­long learning.

How It Works

The Expe­ri­en­tial Learn­ing Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion Pro­gram is an eight-week pro­gram, which includes a flipped class­room of asyn­chro­nous online con­tent with week­ly online inter­ac­tive dis­cus­sion groups facil­i­tat­ed by expe­ri­en­tial learn­ing experts.

The pro­gram also includes one indi­vid­ual coach­ing ses­sion to build self-aware­ness and per­son­al effec­tive­ness, and week­ly meet­ings with learn­ing part­ners to deep­en learning.


Facil­i­ta­tors for this pro­gram will be fac­ul­ty mem­bers from the Insti­tute for Expe­ri­en­tial Learn­ing, among them:
