Training Theories !

Experiential Learning Theory (ELT)

ELT is the most famous theory among Adult Learning Theories. David Kolb found and proposed the theory on 1984. According to the theory, Adult learns through 4 Stages of Learning; Concrete Experience (CE), Reflective Observation (RO), Abstract Conceptualization (AC) and Active Experimentation (AE). SDM believe that “Learning is the process whereby knowledge is created through the transformation of experience”.

The model was developed by SDM based on our experience of developing training lesson plan to focus on result of the training.  We crafted the training lesson plan to achieve the Result that can be useful in associate work and daily life.
