Experiential Teaching is more Conducive to Student Learning than Traditional Teaching

Tian Wang, Jiahui Wen


Some drawbacks of traditional teacher-centred teaching have gradually become apparent and have led to a growing interest in experiential teaching. Students and teachers are prominent participants in the teaching process, and their behavioural performance largely determines the learning outcomes. Likewise, a harmonious teacher-student relationship is essential to students’ learning experience. In this paper, we have analysed the impact of experiential teaching on three aspects: student engagement, teacher-teaching innovation and teacher-student collaboration, to show that experiential has clear advantages for student learning. However, some argue that the design and practice of experiential teaching are challenging for teachers and that the student-centred approach is not conducive to managing classroom order. This, therefore, suggests new elements for teacher education and schoolteacher training to avoid the gap between instructional design and practice. And further research is needed by educational researchers on how to manage classroom order in experiential teaching and to make students learn effectively.
