    Abstract

    Experiential learning has been a core notion in higher education for nearly half a century [1]. However, the application of experiential learning practices on virtual classes is somewhat limited. In this paper, we test different practices of experiential learning intended for online learning. We draw on electronic end-of-module surveys, which have been completed by students upon completion of the class. The sample concerns the completed questionnaires of 197 post-graduate students. Based on these findings, we present a three-pillar model which relies on a) online communities, b) learning-by-doing as part of continuous assessment and, c) multicultural teamwork, to promote experiential learning by replicating a 'workplace environment'.
