This chapter provides an introduction to the complex topic of how individuals learn. The chapter begins with an explanation of what we mean by ‘learning’ and explains the different types of learning, formal and informal. An overview of the human and dispositional factors influencing learning is provided, along with the main barriers to learning that individuals sometimes encounter [KEY TERM: individual traits or attributes, e.g. personality]. A range of learning theories are introduced, including adult learning. The chapter also introduces you to the important concept of experiential learning. An explanation of the different steps in the learning process is provided, along with an overview of the learning styles that learners may display. The chapter concludes with a discussion on e-learning, its benefits and the kinds of support individuals need while engaging in this kind of learning.||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||Red Globe Press (Palgrave Macmillan)||Copyright (published version):||2015 Palgrave Macmillan||Keywords:||Learning theories; Personality; Barriers to learning; Experiential learning; Learning process; E-learning||Other versions:||https://www.amazon.co.uk/Human-Resource-Development-Concise-Introduction/dp/1137360097||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed||Is part of:||Cross, C., Carbery, R.
