Graham Gibbs (1988) adapted the experiential learning cycle to acknowledge the importance of feelings and emotion in learning: It is from the feelings and thought emerging from this reflection that generalisations or concepts can be generated. And it is generalisations or concepts that allow new situations to be tackled effectively. (Gibbs 1988 p9) He also emphasises the importance of being able to generalise, to transfer knowl- edge and insights gained from one situation to another. As a result, this framework is frequently used in developing practitioner courses (such as Healthcare and Business).
