This dissertation reviewed Kolb's Theory of Experiential Learning and considered the effect and application of this theory on a small sample of final year students in the National College of Ireland.
Kolb's Experiential Learning Theory considers four different learning styles: Divergers, Assimilators, Convergers and Accommodators. Among the students surveyed, 4 were Divergers, 4 were Assimilators, 4 were Convergers and 3 were Accommodators.
The learning experience of the students sample was considered in relation to the research objectives. The findings show that while 73% of individuals agreed that Kolb's Experiential Learning Theory was beneficial to them, only 60% of students who worked in groups found it was useful to them.
A system of face-to-face interviews coupled with a questionnaire posted on the internet, was employed to carry out this research.
