Learning is the process whereby knowledge is created. Learning may occur consciously as part of formal education, training, study, or experience. Learning may also occur without conscious awareness through personal experience.
People learn all the time, from everything around them. However, some situations and circumstances are more conducive to learning than others. There are strategies and methods to help ensure that the learning we wish to encourage does happen.
Our Learning section focuses on increasing your knowledge by providing information about how learning occurs as well as strategies that enhance learning and retention. We provide tools and instruments to assess personal learning styles, personality preferences, and preferred learning conditions.
If individual learning is not periodically reinforced, it becomes less and less over time, and eventually will be forgotten by that individual. Therefore, it is important for us to continue to review the principles of learning and the strategies involved in learning in order to increase our personal knowledge of the learning process and how to best apply it.
Our Learning section is divided into the following subsections:
