Abstract

Kolb’s Experiential Learning Theory (ELT) can help educators design learning activities with holistic view in mind. By understanding student’s learning preference, educators may choose the methods that interest students most. From our study of 175 Taiwanese postgraduate students, 49.7% of them are assimilating (AS) type who learn best through reflection and conceptualization. Online peer-assessment activity is found to be preferred in attitude by AS type students over diverging (DI) type. As a result, the utilization of seminars with online peer-assessment can provide real world simulation and may interest the majority of postgraduate students. The implication of using ELT in learning activity design is also discussed.
