School Program Design:

Methodology
The program would be structured around the concept of Experiential Learning, which follows the rationale that doing something does not necessarily result in any particular learning unless we: Observe the result of the action (both the planned and the unplanned); Reflect on what worked well and what could have been different; and Plan, i.e. implement the learning from the observation and reflection by planning to perform better in the next event. This planning can take the form of goal setting and will ideally be applied to both the training program and the participants broader existence (home, sport)

It has been recognised that if learning objectives for an activity or game are discussed they are more likely to be achieved. The experiential learning process of observing and reflecting allows us to evaluate our goals, reset new goals and to take our new knowledge with us to the next task. (continuous improvement)

The experiential learning process has been successful when learning from one situation can be transferred to another.
