The term ”learning by doing” is often used to summarise the pedagogue and philosopher John Deweys (1859-1952) pedagogical ideas. However, Dewey did never use the term, but it corresponds to his view of learning. He meant that people does not only acquire new knowledge by passively receive information, but learn at least as much when they actively explore the world. Learning by doing means with this background learning through practical exercises and assignments.
