Abstract


SRJIS/BIMONTHLY/DR. MAYA UNDE (2047 - 2057) SEPT - OCTOBER, 2014. VOL - II/XIV www.srjis.com Page 2047 EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING AS A TOOL IN FRENCH PEDAGOGY Ms. Sumana Mukerjee , Doctoral Research Scholar, School of Foreign Languages , IGNOU (Indira Gandhi National Open University New Delhi, India ) Tradit ional teaching and training is mainly transfer of knowledge, but this does not include individual student's progress and explore their potential real ly well. This is because traditional method of teaching a foreign language usually looks at what the studen t needs to learn, and the best way in which they can learn it. Experiential learning is a powerful way to address individual growth and potential, for people of all ages. It is more suited to individual style s , preferences, strengths, direction s , etc. This paper highlights the historical background of experiential learning, it's effectiveness in teaching foreign languages , how it emerged, and how well it has blended with French language Pedagogy . This paper on Experiential learning is aimed at identifying the concept s of experiential learning, the models of experiential learning , the experiential learning cycle, its principles and benefi ts for French language students particularly from the middle school . Since we are moving from traditional teaching toward s Student centered learning , can reflection be a n important aspect of teaching - learning process for both students and teachers? Also, in the Indian context, Experiential Education flip s the role of a teacher and a student! A teacher becomes a learner too a nd the student will 'lead' the process of learning. Are our Indian schools ready for this? How do we decide which method of experiential learning will work best?
