While Experiential Learning has been one of the most influential methods in the education and development of managers and management students, it has also been one of the most misunderstood. This Handbook offers the reader a comprehensive picture of current thinking on experiential learning; ideas and examples of experiential learning in practice; and it emphasises the importance of experiential learning to the future of management education.

Meet the Author

Russ Vince and Michael Reynolds are both management teachers and researchers who have taken a particular interest in researching and writing on the theory and practice of management education. As this volume illustrates, their concern has been management education's methodologies and how these relate to the organizational contexts in which managers work. Russ Vince is Professor of Organizational Behaviour and Human Resource Management at the Business School, the University of Hull. Michael Reynolds is Emeritus Professor of Management Learning at Lancaster University Management School. Their previous collaboration includes Organizing Reflection, a collection of papers in which contributors developed the concept and practice of reflection from an individual to a collective process.
