Product Description


"This book does make a significant contribution to experiential education and it will make an invaluable resource for those researching and working in experiential education. Roberts has not only identified many currents where more work needs to be done if we wish to think differently about experiential education but he has put politics and ethics at the forefront of that work, something that is sorely needed in this field."
―Australian Journal of Outdoor Education

If you love Educational Theory and Experiential Education 1 May 2012

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I just finished reading Jay Roberts book. I am currently a MEd graduate student and working an a research project on the transformative qualities of Environmental Education (EE). I found that this book was just what I needed to ground my beliefs, good and bad, about EE. However, I did find chapters 5 and 6 challenging to follow. Not because they were tough to read, but because there was so much good stuff to take in. I could only read 10-15 pages at a time, then I had to reflect on how my mind just got blown.

Also, I have taught EE for 3 years. I have had a similar incident with a student like "Alvin." It is a story I see referenced far to often in the critique of EE. Thank you for including such a powerful narrative to shed light on how these experiences need to be better supported after students leave the EE facility and return home.

This book is recommended to those who want to move past superficial notions ... 11 Sept. 2015

Format: Paperback
Beyond Learning by Doing is a deeply considered, theoretical manuscript that explains (in very accessible writing) the foundational literature and social forces that have shaped what we know today as experiential education. This book is recommended to those who want to move past superficial notions of learning cycles and other recipe book-type ideas, and come to more profoundly interrogate their practice, with a view to improving it. Each time I open the book, I get something new from it.

Beyond Learning by Doing is required reading on my masters level course in Experiential Education.

This book is essential for all and any practitioner interested in improving their understanding of experiences in the context of education and capacity building. It is well structured and well written book. The author provides a simple summaries at the end of each chapter which are life savers. Plenty of quotes and questions that inspire and get you thinking. I enjoyed reading this book immensely.
A must read 11 July 2013

This is a must read for anyone in the field. Roberts gives a thorough philosophical review to experiential education. This foundation allows on to rise above methodology an consider just what it is we do as experiential educators. The routinization of experience and the use of our methodology to serve the needs of commercialization are particular points to consider.
