Experiential learning - immersive and effective or expensive & pointless?

In this session Matt Connell, on behalf of the AHRI L&D network committee and Vic State Council, will take participants on an exploration of experiential learning programs. This session will focus on the pros and cons of traditional classroom-based learning versus programs that take participants outside of their comfort zones in immersive settings. We will consider the 70/20/10 model of learning in terms of how to affect lasting behavioural change.

This topic will appeal to L&D and HR professionals looking for a point of difference in their L&D program design and others considering incorporating different methods of learning into their curriculum.

Speaker: Matt Connell, Executive Workplace Consultant, Workplace Harmony Solutions

Matt has held senior HR management positions in community services/not for profits, local government, travel, and hospitality. Matt is passionate about developing constructive leadership capabilities in others so they may better empower, engage and enhance performance in their own team members. He has coached hundreds of organisational leaders in understanding their impact on workplace cultures through facilitating self and 360 degree assessments of Emotional Intelligence and conducting feedback sessions that encourage learning, real change and growth. As a certified HR practitioner Matt is a passionate advocate for the profession in this volunteer role.

Matt spent seven years working in Adventure Travel at Peregrine Adventure and has worked and travelled in six continents driving zodiacs in Antarctica, taking tours to remote Aboriginal historical sites in central Australia and on the Kokoda Track in PNG. His experience and success in delivering leadership development programs has led to an opportunity to lead an experiential leadership program on the Camino de Santiago in northern Spain in July 2019.
