Experiential Learning of Curriculum Reform in China

Jiuzhou ZHANG, Hui FANG


With the promotion of comprehensive curriculum reform in China, a focus on pupils’ “learning experience”  in primary and secondary schools has become popular. In practice, however, there exist some problems of implementation: Conceptual confusion, too much focus on “experience” and not enough on “learning”; unclear objectives, resulting in a lack of proper understanding of what learning can be achieved through experience; and a change of form but not substance. We believe that experience learning is not intended simply to maintain students’ current life experience, but to go beyond this; not simply to prepare students for future experiences, but to lead them to go beyond reality experience and forward to a better life.
