About the Certification Program

ISEEN is excited to offer this unique online certification program specifically for the ISEEN network. For educators who have participated in the Summer or Winter Institutes who want to continue working during the school year with a supportive coach and group of ISEEN faculty (8-12 people), this is an excellent way to dive deeper into experiential learning by becoming certified by the Institute for Experiential Learning. David and Alice Kolb (of the Kolb Cycle) are teaching faculty for this online program!  

The Experiential Learning Certification Program (Level I Principles) is a small group online learning experience designed to support participants’ self-discovery and self-development as an experiential educator using the principles of Experiential Learning. The program design includes a flipped-classroom of asynchronous online content with weekly online interactive discussion groups to deepen understanding. The program also includes weekly meetings with learning partners to apply learning and two individual coaching sessions to build self-awareness and personal effectiveness.

Educators who participate in the program can expect to leave with an understanding of the principles of Experiential Learning that will empower them to accomplish the following:

  • To practice using the learning cycle for effectiveness in learning and life
  • To create learning spaces that enhance performance, learning, and development
  • To examine one’s own learning preferences and recognize others’ preferences
  • To build learning flexibility to support adaptability and change
  • To apply experiential learning to enhance team effectiveness
  • To build capability in four educator roles that promote full cycle learning
  • To design and evaluate effective experiential exercises
  • To develop expertise and sustain lifelong learning


Throughout the 8-week online certification program, sessions will be led by an incredible group of leaders in the field including the following:

David A. Kolb, PhD
Alice Kolb, PhD
Christopher Kayes, PhD
Angela Passarelli, PhD
Mai Trinh, PhD
Kay Peterson, MS, MBA
