Whilst 21st century education is increasingly driven by technology, a holistic learning experience is still largely reliant on traditional pedagogies. This study focused on experiential learning that inspired design thinking among Taylor’s University students where creative cities were visited to heighten appreciation and understanding of arts and design movements. Previous research identified that learners are immersed in methods that suit their aptitude and selfconfidence built in their prior learning, whereas the presence of a facilitator provides a nurturing setting and allows the learner to utilize their analytical skills in conceptualizing and processing new knowledge. In addition, it was proposed that individual learning styles are significant influences towards experiential learning. This study examined perceptions of students and elements of experiential learning incorporated during their excursion. In doing so, the similarities and differences of their individual reflections and continuance intention towards the learning experience warranted further exploration.
