Kolb’s Experiential Learning Theory (ELT) Video Script In this video, we’re going to take a brief look at the Four Stages of Kolb’s Experiential Learning Cycle. In order to do well in this course, it’s important that you have a solid understanding of each stage, as you will use them to write both your 5-to-7-page draft (due in Module 6 of this course) and your final 10- or 20- page paper, which should be submitted promptly after the course ends. David A. Kolb, the originator of the Experiential Learning Cycle, is a renowned educational theorist and Professor of Organizational Behavior at Case Western Reserve University.

Let’s first look at each of the stages in turn. Stage One: Concrete Experiences . As the name suggests, in this stage of your paper you simply describe a significant event or period in your life. This might be a job you have had, a challenge you have overcome, time spent living overseas, raising a child, or any number of other experiences. One good way to approach this stage of your paper is to think of yourself as a reporter answering the questions who, what, when, where, why, and how . For example, what did you do? When and where did you do it? Who was involved besides yourself? How did you feel about what you did? Stage Two: Observations and Reflections
