  4. 4. Active and Experiential Learning  The recent White Paper which put ‘students at the heart of system’ purported, good students should not be simply consumers of other people’s knowledge (BIS 2011), harmonising with the current direction of higher education, the emphasis in experiential learning theory is on learners as active participants in learning. www.derby.ac.uk/udb
  5. 5. Active and Experiential Learning Definitions www.derby.ac.uk/udb ‘Exploiting and enhancing the energy in people and drawing them into a positive spiral which engenders deep level learning’. (Laevers 2005:9) ‘A sense making process involving significant experiences that, to varying degrees, act as the source of learning.’ (Beard 2010:17) ‘The process whereby knowledge is created through the transformation of experience. Knowledge results from the combination of grasping and transforming experience’. (Kolb, 1984: 41)

  15. 15. International Spa Management  Elemis Angels This experience was a great opportunity to get involved in, the spa was changing their main product line from Espa to Elemis and it was our job to fill in the therapist positions, while the permanent staff were in training. This opportunity was very worthwhile; it was a great experience and addition to our CV. We have been able to work alongside the manager and Elemis staff and gained very good references as a result. www.derby.ac.uk/udb
