Experiential Learning

Experiential Learning differs from learning in a traditional method in several ways.

First, learners are encouraged to manage their own learning rather than being told what to do. Second, the learning does not necessarily only take place in classrooms or only from academic texts. Third, it is not a one-way of learning where the knowledge only flows from educators to learners. Instead, learners are encouraged to actively participate in the learning process and knowledge flows in various directions.

Our interpretation


In Hatch we believe that theoretical knowledge is important; but it are real life experiments that become immersive learning experiences. We guide you into scientifically-grounded and track-proven practices, that will offer you instant result. Everything starts with taking the first difficult step in our learning experiences so that we push ourselves to find the hidden capabilities we have.


After experimentation and experiencing, comes understanding. We support you in consciously reflecting on your own practices, and recognizing how newly-learned behaviours and improved capabilities will help you reach your future goals.


The more individual reflections are shared between the people in our community, the more visible the connections, similarities, and possibilities will become. This will not just create another level of awareness and process of learning; it will also expand your network and bring you new breezes of inspiration!

Experiential learnings consists of

Critical reflection, analysis, and synthesis
Learners must be able to take initiative, make own decisions and be accountable for the results
Learners must be able to engage intellectually, creatively, emotionally, socially, and / or physically
A designed learning experience that includes the possibility to learn from natural consequences, mistakes, and successes
