Abstract

We investigated the effectiveness of field visit as an experiential learning method by assessing course learning outcomes among postgraduate management students in managerial economics course.Thestudydocuments theplanningandorganisation ofthe fieldvisitto anindustrywithin the framework of Kolb’s (1984) Experiential Learning Method as well as the assessment of learning from an industrial field visit against the specified course learning outcomes. While the perception survey showed that majority of the students valued learning from the field visit, we found huge variations in students’ performance in final exam in terms of course learning outcomes. Assurance of learning analysis in the context of cognitive domain of Bloom’s taxonomy showed that industrial field visit is more suitable for evaluating lower order learning in terms of knowledge and comprehension. We discuss the results in detail towards integrating experiential learning through field visits and future implementation of field visits in managerial economics course for better learning outcomes.
