The Center for Executive Development (CED) designs educational offerings around the core principle that real, transformative learning happens in communities. Our educators foster this environment where engaged teams can explore and expand skills in simulated experiences.
These experiences take participants out of their normal contexts and provide safe and relevant environments to recognize, learn, and practice new behaviors while gaining new awareness. These learning experiences have been characterized as:
Experiential learning allows participants to develop knowledge, skills, and values through relevant, impactful experiences.
Most executive education relies heavily on traditional classroom activities. CED uses multiple, innovative methods to our clients’ advantage.
Employing a variety of learning methods is important because:
- Adults learn best from experience, discovery, and practice
- Multiple learning approaches allow completion of the learning cycle
- A variety of methods give “stickiness”: compelling, enduring, effective learning
- Non-traditional methods can create openness to and a safe environment for learning (experimenting)
- A variety of approaches help bridge the gap between theory and practice
