LESSON 5 Learning process : A Few Good Learning Theories Friends, In previous lesson you have studied about learning styles. In this lesson is going to give you exposure in following topic. Objective: 1. To understand about Learning process 2. To be able to execute training in successful training process 3. To know about various learning theories Introduction, Friends, In your previous semesters you have already been introduces to learning and learning theories in Organisation Behaviour. Few theories you have studied were cognitive theory, Classical conditioning, and social learning. Here are some interesting recent theories of learning. The Three Representational Modes (TRiM) All information that is perceived via the senses passes through three processors that encode it as linguistic , nonlinguistic , or affective representations. This is how we learn. NOTE: This work only goes in to the major part of TRiM. For a more detailed work, see Marzano (1998) (note that he does not use this acronym).

For example, if you go to a football game for the first time you encode information linguistically such as rules; retain mental images nonlinguistically, such as mental images of the players positioning themselves and then getting set (pose); and finally, you have various sensations which are encoded affectively, such as the excitement during a touchdown. Each representation can be thought of as a record that is encoded and then filed away. THE LINGUISTIC MODE In the educational and training world, knowledge is most commonly presented linguistically (the study of language), so perhaps this mode receives the most attention from a learning standpoint (Chomsky, 1988). The linguistic mode includes verbal communication, reading, watching (e.g. learn the rule of chess through observation), etc. Discussions and theories around the linguistic mode can get quite complex so I am keeping this fairly simple. Basically, the linguistic processor encodes our experiences as abstract propositions. Propositions are thought to perform a number of other functions in addition to being the primary bearers of truth and falsity and the things expressed by collections of declarative sentences in virtue of which all members of the collection "say the same thing". Propositions represent the things we doubt and know. They are the bearers of modal properties, such as being necessary and possible. Some of them are the things that ought to be true. These propositions are organized into two networks: 1. The declarative network contains information about specific events and the information generalized from them. These are the "what" of human knowledge. 2. The procedural network contains information about how to perform specific mental or physical processes. Often thought of as IF and THEN statements. These two networks are the main channels for interacting with each other (communication).
