The 7 Universal Laws of Learning
Learning exists within all human beings. The challenge is to make sure that our actions do not snuff the flame. Here are the universal 7 Laws of Learning.
Universal Learning Law #1 – Learning is innate within all human beings. If you ever were a parent and had to listen to the "Why" questions from a young child, you would most definitely agree. Since learning is innate, then why do so many individuals lose that desire?
Education whether it is Kindergarten through college or corporate training and development must continually look to expand the affective learning domain and not restrict it. By taking such proactive actions, then the desire to learn will continue to burn brightly for ALL individuals.
Education: #2 Universal Law of Learning - Learning is not just one dimensional because human beings have multiple senses. Understanding those senses as well as how human beings make connections is why learning is truly multi-dimensional.
Universal Learning Law #3 – Learning is a separate behavior from performance. Learning is the acquisition of knowledge. Performance is the application of knowledge.
Universal Learning Law #4 – Learning is a bridge between new information and the students’ or participants’ existing schema.
Universal Learning Law #5 – Each learning objective requires a one to one correspondence to each testing statement to evaluate the effectiveness of instruction.
Universal Learning Law #6 – Learning must avoid the “Osmosis Factor” where a presumption exists that the students or participants will acquire certain knowledge and skills without direct instruction.
Universal Learning Law #7– The brain will only absorb what the butt will endure.
When these universal laws of learning are actively embraced, creating sustainable behavioral change is much easier to attain.
