ExEd Survey

Welcome to the results of our international survey on “Media Making in Experiential Learning.”

The survey was conducted in 2015 to learn about the impact of the Digital Age on our profession. It was designed as an opinion poll. Most of the 288 responses came from affiliated professional groups, such as NAIS, Prescott College, Global Education Benchmark Group (GEBG), Outward Bound, NOLS, Independent Schools Experiential Education Network (ISEEN), etc. While this kind of poll has little scientific validity, 119 unique comments personalize the data in a fascinating way.

We’re delighted to know that these findings are already being put to use, as in the presentation by The American School in Switzerland at the 2015 GEBG conference in Miami. Feel free to do the same. We only ask for attribution.

Below find two formats for the report – a breakout by top responses within professional group and a shorter slideshow.

  1. Thanks for sending me the link John. You are right that this is a breakthrough in supporting learning and development and so much more could be made of it. Your work on this will surely push this work further and make it a valuable and integral aspect of experiential education. I would add that anyone being filmed should have the right to exercise their veto (much like Challenge by Choice) if they have any reservations about their antics or words on an experiential education course being shared with others or with the whole world. 90% of the time this can be a brilliant way to promote reflection and transfer. Some stuff (the 10%?) in experiential education is for keeping in the group rather than for broadcasting to the world.
