Implementing AIESEC XP | Our Learning Environment | AIESEC International 2005 7. All these 6 components need tobecome the core of AIESEC activity in each of our LCs, all around theAIESEC network.This gives a framework to LC activities for @XP implementation. Implementing AIESEC XP | Our Learning Environment | AIESEC International 2005 8. In the current context ofIndividual discovery and reflectionAIESEC, these 3components are alreadyT present in most of ourTeam ExperiencesLCs. But they need to go through a little bit of a transformation. Conferences andSeminars Implementing AIESEC XP | Our Learning Environment | AIESEC International 2005 9.

UnderstandingIndividual Discovery and ReflectionImplementing AIESEC XP | Our Learning Environment | AIESEC International 2005 11. Individual Discovery and ReflectionThis diagram shows the formal steps that anindividual takes through the AIESECExperience. It has been carefully designed asa self-driven structured learning experience.All members go through a formalintroduction to the organization and thenbegin to take on responsibility in an area oftheir interest.They then have the option to take onleadership positions, work abroad throughour internship program, or both.The final step is to head for the future totake the skills, inspiration, and networksfrom AIESEC to have a positive impact insociety.Implementing AIESEC XP | Our Learning Environment | AIESEC International 2005 12. Individual Study and Reflection Even if we know little about what goes on in the human brain, we do know some of the mental processes involved in learning. It is human nature that people do not want to be spoon-fed conclusions made by others. They want to be provided with the relevant information and the opportunity to build their own big-picture understanding, in order to draw these conclusions themselves. People do this through exploration, interaction and dialogue. Celemi applies the "learning spiral" a basic framework for a solutions flow. This ensures that participants will reach their "Aha!" moments that will lead them to appropriate conclusions and actions. http://www.celemi.com/learningdesign/approach/index.php Implementing AIESEC XP | Our Learning Environment | AIESEC International 2005 13.

Teams are the basis of our currentorganizational structure (X-teams, projectteams, EBs, MCs etc.). Essentially, from thefirst to the last step of an individualsexperience in AIESEC is taken within ateam. Teams also bring to light the criticalaspect of learning by doing.Our teams need to be the hub of enterprisein the organization, where we move awayfrom the current rigidity of structures andcreate space for innovation and activity onthe basis of an individual interest.Team ExperiencesTImplementing AIESEC XP | Our Learning Environment | AIESEC International 2005 18.

UnderstandingLearning CirclesImplementing AIESEC XP | Our Learning Environment | AIESEC International 2005 20. AIESEC Learning Circles are local learning communities. Theyare formed by local and international AIESECers who share acommon interest in gaining experience, knowledge andnetworks in a common sector or topic. Eg. Human Rights The Learning Circles are not staticor formal structures. They re-arrange themselves around the content that is being experienced,discussed and the other individuals participating. Learning Circles canhave different focuses- they can begroups of mixed experience, orthey may be generations of members from a similar level.Learning Circles Implementing AIESEC XP | Our Learning Environment | AIESEC International 2005 21. People may be part of more than one and attendance is based on interest. Longer-term structures can beestablished based on interest and commitment, e.g. a weekly casualmeeting around a LN topic.This process can be facilitated by amore experienced member especiallyfor a Learning Circle of a generation ofIntroduction Stage AIESECers.

UnderstandingConferences and Seminars Implementing AIESEC XP | Our Learning Environment | AIESEC International 2005 27. AIESEC holds over 350 national & international conferences every year! These conferences currently serve as a major organizational activity support. At many of these conferences, and in many local events, AIESEC invites speakers to challenge us with their understanding and perspective. This expertise, whether from alumni, partners or members themselves, provide great opportunities for our membership to gain high quality information and to engage our stakeholders in our learning environment.Conferences and Seminars Implementing AIESEC XP | Our Learning Environment | AIESEC International 2005 28. We also need to reach out & create extensive opportunities for our membership to participate in external conferences & seminars organized by partner or other organizations. This would go a long way in broadening the perspective of our membership & would allow them to look at things, which are currently outside the realms of AIESECs operations.Conferences and Seminars Implementing AIESEC XP | Our Learning Environment | AIESEC International 2005 29.
