In his 2011 Capture Your Flag interview, author and writer Scott Gold discusses how he learns from his father that "Experience is the hardest teacher" as the test comes before the lesson. He shares the experiential lesson learned of Hurricane Katrina and its affect on his family's Louisiana home. He compares experiential learning with self-directed learning, which emphasizes initiative and failure as an educational process. Scott Gold is an author and writer based in New York City.
