The expression 'chalk-and-talk' (the teacher writes on a board and speaks while learners listen and look and try to absorb facts) refers to a style of teaching or training which contains no experiential learning aspect whatsoever.
For instance - people who prefer the 'Assimilating' learning style will not be comfortable being thrown in at the deep end without notes and instructions.
MTa Academy runs 8766 hands on, 8767 interactive Workshops and Masterclasses throughout the year to help you get the most out of our training materials.

The maximum amount of life experience credit accepted toward graduation is 66 quarter credit hours for an Associate degree, 87 quarter credit hours for a Bachelor&rsquo s degree and 8 quarter credit hours for a Master&rsquo s degree. The Prior Learning Assessment team will provide support and guidance to position your portfolio in the best manner possible.
The result of these two decisions produces (and helps to form throughout our lives) the preferred learning style, hence the two-by-two matrix below. We choose a way of 'grasping the experience', which defines our approach to it, and we choose a way to 'transform the experience' into something meaningful and usable, which defines our emotional response to the experience. Our learning style is a product of these two choice decisions:

It works on the basis that people can and should be developed from the inside out, not the other way around. In merely transferring and conveying knowledge to a person we do very little to help them grow as individuals, and when we starve this need most people quickly begin to lose confidence and hopes of becoming someone special in life.
