Theories of learning – Cognitive-Gestalt approaches

Theories of learning – Cognitive-Gestalt approaches

The emphasis here is on the importance of experience, meaning, problem-solving and the development of insights (Burns 1995, p.112). Burns notes that this theory has developed the concept that individuals have different needs and concerns at different times, and that they have subjective interpretations in different contexts.

Burns states that everyone has different needs and learns differently so it is important to consider learning through experience, problem, solving, trial and error or experimentation, to find a learning style appropriate to the situation.
