What is The CEEA?
CT Experiential Education Association Formally CT Challenge Course Professionals
It is the mission of the CEEA to provide educational and networking opportunities in the field of adventure programming in the Connecticut region, and to promote and nurture the cooperation of the challenge course practitioners.
What is Experiential Programming?
Called by a few different names like adventure education, adventure programming, experiential programming, personal challenge, etc... The emphasis for learning is placed on experiencing the learning, actively reflecting upon and processing that new knowledge, and then applying that knowledge to new experiences.
….a corporate group solving a “field maze”
….an individual working their way through a high ropes course
….or a school group problem solving the “Mohawk Walk Initiative”
… the learning happens via the experience.
Learning while doing.
This approach increases the retention from the 10% retention of the spoken word to more like 75% retention from an interactive experience. Also, the synergy of the program often brings out new ground to be explored. Where a group or individual starts out in one place… the experience may take the group or individual to an unanticipated place.
