Abstract

This chapter considers whether John Dewey's writings about experiential education are relevant to modern‐day conceptions of adult experiential learning. It highlights how some of the threads of Dewey's thinking are still pertinent, but much more complex. In this short chapter, my goal is to consider whether John Dewey's writings about experiential education have been, and currently are, relevant to modern‐day conceptions of experiential learning in adults. The answer to this question is unequivocally yes. Dewey's influence continues to have significance for conceptions of experiential learning in adults; however, a degree of elucidation is necessary. This chapter, in presenting clarification to this simplistic answer, references a wide‐ranging body of literature on both experiential learning and experiential education, to show how, and where, the threads of Dewey's thinking continue or discontinue.
