How do effective learning processes work?
The goal of learning – acquiring information – is realized when people process information stimuli, retain this information and can recall it. The stimuli are transferred from the sensory memory to the short-term memory and finally, to the long-term memory. This is achieved through repeated processes. Determining which learning methods and learning strategies are effective depends, among other things, on one’s learning style. There are various theories that divide people into learning styles. One of the best-known theories is from Vester. He divides learners into auditory, visual, communicative and kinesthetic learning styles. Kolb, on the other hand, classifies styles in his theory as diverging, assimilating, converging and accommodating. Certain learning methods are more or less suitable depending on the learning type. But regardless of the learning style, the key is to engage as many sensory channels as possible.
Lifelong learning in a digital environment
Digital transformation brings with it many new challenges and opportunities. Digital media and the internet facilitate new ways of learning and make learning materials and programs readily accessible. Some examples of this are gamification, e-learning and mobile learning. Keeping an open mind to new technologies is essential. Those who are willing to embrace digital transformation and learn from new opportunities enjoy long-term personal and professional growth. A digital growth mindset also plays an essential role. The growth mindset describes a way of thinking in which learning is considered a lifelong process and intelligence is something that can be developed. In a digital context, a growth mindset encourages people to open up to new technologies and learn how to use them safely.
The unique characteristics of adult education
Adults learn differently than children. They have more experience with learning, can build on existing knowledge but lack the time to devote to learning. This makes it important to provide learning content that isn’t restricted to a particular location or time. An adult’s motivation to learn is also very different from that of a child. The lifelong learning process is focused on individual interests, personal development and new professional opportunities. Training and retraining play a major role in the workplace, but people can also take courses in their free time or learn new subjects on their own.
