Concept of Learning Experiences
It is on the careful planning of learning experiences that learning of any subject or skill depends. Planning of learning experiences is connected with educational objectives which are being proposed by such experiences to be achieved. In reality, true learning is not concerned only with acquisition of certain traits or skills in the students, whereas, it is various kinds of positive changes brought about in the behavioural pattern of the students.
Changes of different kinds are being experienced by learners in any course of instruction, which take place in terms of established goals.
An important cause of changes taking place in the behavioural pattern of students is the kind of interaction taking place in between the students and their immediate environment. In planning learning experiences, student’s participation play an important role.
Thus, learning experiences are those activities which are being planned to attain some specific purposes of bringing about desirable kind of changes in behavioural pattern of the students.
