  • The course Introduction to the Learning Process for Teachers and Trainers provides a framework for teachers and trainers to plan, create and deliver effective lessons, and assess each student's learning.

    The course begins by introducing you to the learning process, by differentiating between teaching and learning, and by describing teachers' and trainers' perspectives on learning. For teachers and trainers to fulfil their instructional role most effectively, their teaching methods must be grounded in educational learning theory.

    Next, the course provides details about two major learning theories: behaviourism (operant conditioning) and constructivism (psychological constructivism and social constructivism). Finally, the implications of constructivism for teaching are discussed using two practical strategies.

    This education course will be of great interest to professionals in the education sector who would like a greater knowledge and understanding of the learning process that will enhance their teaching and training, and to all students who are interested in the process of how we learn.
