The present study embarks upon the designing of an experiential curriculum based on a phenomenological approach. In this theoretical study, attempts has been made to decode and analyze the text messages using library sources and then design a new model emphasizing the views held by Van Manen and Ted Aoki. The levels of this model include: Expected Curriculum, Imaginal Curriculum, Concealed curriculum, Interactive curriculum (Pedagogical Action, in loco Parentis, Covered Curriculum) Pedagogical Influence and Self- Reflective. Serving as a research model offering the various planes of the experiential curriculum and focusing more sharply on the dimensions of curriculum than the formal plane, the present study is recommended to the decision-makers of education curricular system.
