The Process of Learning

  • Diana Percy
Chapter

Abstract

Learning is acquiring knowledge, skill and awareness of a subject or field. The process by which we learn involves study, instruction, practice and experience in some combination with one other. Although the ability to memorise plays a part in the learning process, it does not constitute learning in and of itself. To have learned something is more than being able to repeat facts and ideas parrot-style. It is necessary also to understand the information, have some knowledge of the context and to be able to integrate the material.
