Factors affecting learning

In this chapter we will examine numerous factors that might influence learning. We have already examined a number of learning theories in Chapter 5, which are useful in underpinning the design of structured learning events and are also important in helping individuals understand better how they learn and how they might improve their ability to learn. Individual differences in the way people prefer to learn indicate the type of learning environment or process they will benefit from most.
