Experiential learning is perhaps the most significant focus today for educators in the workplace, in communities, in literacy education, as well as in colleges and universities. Working from five very
different approaches to experiential learning, this book addresses three questions. First, what is the nature of the intersection between individual(s), situation, social relationships, and knowing? Second,
is there a legitimate role for an educator in this process? And third, where educators have an ethical role to play in experiential learning, what purposes and approaches should guide this role? For those
seeking explanations of various theoretical perspectives and current research in experiential learning, this book provides a solid introduction. For those interested in critique, the book illustrates the
oversights and potential oppression embedded in different experiential learning approaches. And for those who want to know what it looks like, one section presents sample strategies and examples of practice.
