This paper describes the use of an experiential learning technique for the System Development Lifecycle (SDLC) as presented in the capstone course Systems Analysis and Design. Experiential learning is defined using the 4 step model of David Kolb. The System Development Lifecycle is explored using a modified version of the SDLC model described by Valacich George and Hoffer. This experiential learning technique has been utilized and continuously improved since 1999 and the results have demonstrated an exceptional level of student learning, understanding and application.

Keywords: Systems Analysis and Design, Systems Development Life Cycle, Experiential Learning
