Our Mission and Vision
Cilre was founded with a vision to make education available, exciting and relevant. We believe that
Cilre provides a non judgmental experimenting platform for a wide range of fields which helps children to discover and nurture their interests.
We aim to make this by offering learning experiences that are
- Learner Centric
What is Experiential Learning?
Experiential learning is the process of learning through experience. Experiential learning focuses on the learning process for the individual. One example of experiential learning is going to the zoo and learning through observation and interaction with the zoo environment, as opposed to reading about animals from a book.
Why Experiential Learning?
Experiential Learning uses real life scenarios that depict several challenges, which a learner will eventually face. It is only natural that mistakes happen during the course of learning. Using simulations is like taking kids to a playground, and getting them to have fun, try new things and learn, in a safe controlled environment.
It bridges the Gap Between Theory and Practice. The learner gets a first hand experience of practicing what has been taught. This plays a crucial role in retaining concepts and ideas.
The high focus on collaboration and learning from each other benefits the participant as it increases engagement. On the other hand, since the participant is immediately involved in the problem solving activity or event, the level of ownership of the outcome is high – More here
Student Centric Learning
There is growing evidence that courses with learner-centered approaches—those approaches that use active learning strategies to engage students directly in learning processes—enhance academic achievement. They promote the development of important learning skills, such as critical thinking, problem solving, and the ability to cooperatively work with others.
- The functions of the content in learner-centered teaching include building a strong knowledge foundation and to develop learning skills and learner self-awareness.
- The roles of the instructor should focus on student learning. The roles are facilitative rather than didactic.
- The responsibility for learning shifts from the instructor to the students. The instructor creates learning environments that motivate students to accept responsibility for learning.
Benefits of Exploratory Learning
