What is the importance of learning psychology


intentional (intentional learning), incidental (incidental and implicit learning), individual or collective acquisition of mental, physical and social knowledge and skills. From a learning psychological point of view, learning is understood as a process of relatively stable change in behavior, thinking or feeling, as a processed perception of the environment or awareness of one's own impulses (qualification). In this respect, learning is an individual, autopoietic and active process in which knowledge, emotions, skills, but also behavior, attitudes and values ​​are changed through experience. Learning is therefore a process that is constructed individually and based on experience. Here, the person acts actively by bringing their own world of experience and experience into the learning process and thereby adapting individually existing knowledge and skills. In other words, information is converted into own knowledge, i.e. integrated into existing knowledge structures. Relation to experience is therefore central to the anchoring and thus the meaning of the learning content. Furthermore, the attitude of the person is decisive for the sustainable success of learning. For personnel development, this means supporting employees in recognizing the added value of an educational measure. An educational measure should therefore meet four essential conditions: Information must appear meaningful and relevant to the employee, information must be helpful in their own work situation, information must not be redundant, information must be linked to the employee's existing knowledge so that it can be integrated.
