Taking a look at modern teaching and learning approaches, concepts and perceptions
MetadataShow full item record
Learning is a process in which students acquire and use knowledge to better understand themselves and the world around them resulting in conceptual change. Learning is not about the accumulation of loosely related theoretical facts which are repeated without meaning, as suggested in cognitive learning theory in which students are viewed merely as a processors of information [1,2]. The broader concept of adult learning (andragogy), where adults accept responsibility for their own learning, is concurrently underpinned by a variety of associated learning theories . The eventual outcome of learning is the creation of a person who is able to challenge their own reality of the world through reflective practice and meaningful insight into concepts, theories and hypotheses [1,3-5].
