Education in Palliative Care

Experiential learning is used widely to describe many types of non-traditional classroom teaching. This chapter focuses on experiential workshops. When planning and delivering experiential workshops, consideration should be given to all four elements of Kolb's well known ‘experiential learning cycle’. Such workshops may offer opportunities for reflection, exploration, and experimentation. Whatever the focus, a good experiential workshop provides an opportunity to translate new insights into the context of practice. This chapter explains the purposes of experiential workshops, describes the skills involved in planning and leading experiential workshops, and provides detailed examples of three methods of experiential learning: role play, sculpting, and exploring experience through creative connections.

Keywords:   effective teaching, understanding, experiental learning, experimentation, palliative care, role play
