The application of adult learning theory in designing instruction
The learning brain model of instruction
To predict and control behavior, stimuli are linked to responses. The approach is based on the premise that learning occurs primarily through reinforcement of desired responses - meaning "rewards."
In this didactic model, someone "telling" the information leads a formal learning session - usually in lecture format.
Five levels of needs indicate that a person can achieve a higher level of need only after lower levels are satisfied, which suggests that people are motivated by different factors - factors that may be unknown or difficult to discern.
