International Conference on Experiential Learning 2017


The 21st century is making many of the conventional classroom-based educational methodologies ineffective at all levels. There is a widespread interest in the adoption of experiential learning in professional disciplines such as education, engineering, business and media in universities as well as in schools. Experiential learning is learning by doing and includes Project-based learning, Problem-based learning (PBL) and activity-based learning. It is often referred to learning through action, experience, discovery and exploration.

Who Should Participate?

Industry Professionals, Experiential Learning Experts, Academicians, Policy Makers, Research Institutions, Research Scholars, School & College Principals, Students and NGOs

IoBM invites you to participate through research papers, poster presentations and case studies that demonstrate a clear conceptual framework of translating theory into practice through experiential learning. There are three conference tracks: (i) research papers, (ii) posters presentations and (iii) case studies. The three tracks represent action, experience and exploration which are the core features of Experiential Learning.
