Abstract

Learning in humans is an extremely complex process. Many theories have been espoused to explain the learning process. However, no single theory can fully explain how learning process occurs. There is no clear cut demarcation between the theories. Their boundaries seem to be overlapping with each other. Cognitive psychologists have explained how learning takes place from different perspectives. The major traditional schools of thought concerning learning include behaviourist, cognitivist, and constructivist schools. Socio-cultural, situated and activity theories of learning have emerged more recently through understanding the ways in which students learn, teachers can help them learn by planning the most effective way to learn. The appropriateness of any learning theory depends on the context. A blend of learning theories is suitable most of the times. [Saxena R Natl J Integr Res Med, 2021; 12(1):95-98]
