demonstrable gains in skills, knowledge, concepts and understanding. Learning outcomes are the actual gains made by learners.
Any relatively permanent change in behavior brought about through experience.
The acquiring and understanding of information, which may lead to improvement or change. Examples of organisational learning activities include benchmarking, internally and externally led assessments and/or audits, and best practice studies. Examples of individual learning include training and professional qualifications.

changes in an individual's knowledge or behavior as a result of previous experience or exposure to new information; see reinforcement.
the acquiring of knowledge or skill.
Cognitive and experiential process of acquiring skills or knowledge.
the acquiring and understanding of information which may lead to improvement or change. Organisational learning activities include benchmarking, assessments, audits, and best practice studies. Individual learning activities include formal training, secondment, using mentors and coaches, etc
Any behavioral change depending on experiences, which improve system performances
is the process of developing a skill or of acquiring knowledge and understanding of a subject.
Adaptive modification of behavior in response to specific experiences during the individual's life. Acquiring knowledge or developing the ability to perform new behaviors. Changes that are not due to fatigue or differences in motivation.
Adding to or modifying existing knowledge either on the basis of personal experience or interaction with others.
The acquisition of knowledge or skill acquired by experience, instruction, or studying information which results in new or improved skills, knowledge, behaviors, and/or attitudes.
the cognitive process of acquiring skill or knowledge; "the child's acquisition of language"
a relatively permanent change to the frequency of actions brought about by instruction or reinforced practice; celeration.
Knowledge acquired by systematic study in any field.
A cumulative process whereby individuals gradually assimilate increasingly complex and abstract entities (concepts, categories, and patterns of behaviour or models) and/or acquire skills and competences. Source: adapted from Lave, 1997.
Reflecting on experience to identify how a situation or future actions could be improved and then using this knowledge to make actual improvements. This can be individual or group-based. Learning involves applying lessons learned to future actions, which provides the basis for another cycle of learning.
a change in neural function as a consequence of experience.
The acquisition of novel behavior through experience
learning can be defined as the cognitive and physical activity giving rise to a relatively permanent change in knowledge, skill, or attitude. A distinction is oftenmade between declarative learning,which increases knowledge of facts, and procedural learning, which improves knowledge of procedures. Most workplace learning involves a mixture of both. Theories of learning attempt to explain how learning occurs in individuals. The importance of learning to modern economies is evidenced in terms such as the ‘learning organization', ‘knowledge workers', and ‘lifelong learning'.

The process of acquiring knowledge, attitudes, or skills from study, instruction, or experience. Source: Miller & Findlay 1996, p.167. The knowledge, attitudes, or skills acquired.
a relatively permanent change in behavioral potentiality, that can be measured, that occurs as a result of reinforced practice; gaining knowledge, skills, or developing a behavior through study, instruction, or experience.
A relatively permanent change in cognition, resulting from experience and directly influencing behavior.
The process of gaining knowledge or information; ascertaining by inquiry, study, or investigation; acquiring understanding of, or skill, as in learning the way; learning to dance; learning the truth about something.
A relatively permanent change in behaviour or behavioural potential resulting from direct or indirect experience
A cognitive and/or physical process in which a person assimilates information and temporarily or permanently acquires or improves skills, knowledge, behaviors, and/or attitudes.
the process of acquiring knowledge or skill through study, practice or experience.
National Training Reform aims to recognise learning from wherever it may originate. This includes recognition of both on and off the job training, not just TAFE and university degrees, diplomas and certificates, but skills learnt from public and private providers at work and by experience. These are to be linked by articulation of learning and credit transfer from one place to another. If workers have competencies it does not matter how they got them - they should be able to have them recognised.
Simon defined learning as changes in a system that result in improved performance over time on tasks similar to those done previously. A dictionary definition is that it is acquiring knowledge or skill through study, experience or teaching. Whether a computer system "learns" or merely "induces generalizations" is often a subject of debate, because typical generalization procedures and concept representations are simplistic and brittle. Simon's definition seems to suggest continuous, cumulative improvement as the acid test, and the dictionary hints at the breadth and depth of background knowledge applied and the ability learn from various kinds of input.
(voir Apprendre, Apprentissage) (A) To integrate, assimilate or incorporate " news " in an already internal cognitive structure. (B) Act of perception, interaction and integration of an object by a subject, acquisition of knowledge or development of skills or attitudes.
to acquire knowledge or skill in an area.

a relatively permanent change in knowledge or behavior resulting from experience. (236)
A change of behavior in in knowledge which results from experience and practice.
A change in behavior as a result of experience.
The acquisition of knowledge or skill. It occurs in, and may lead to changes in, the brain.
The iterative process of knowledge creation and transformation that results in new knowledge, skills, attitudes, and other cognitive, physical, or emotional capabilities.
The term learning is used in the widest sense to encompass any process through which individuals and teams acquire knowledge, skills or changes in attitude, primarily but not exclusively in relation to their role within the organisation. The terms learning, training, employee development, human resource development and education are taken as synonymous for the purposes of this pack.
Learning takes place when someone is stimulated, motivated or inspired and undergoes some kind of personal change. The term learning is used instead of 'education' because it emphasises that all users and staff collaborate in and benefit from activities which increase, skills, understanding, engagement and which change behaviour and attitudes. It also emphasises that these activities are centred on the learner's experiences. In some institutions, the word 'education' is used to refer only to work with school groups although in others it incorporates learning for everyone. Some consider that the term 'education' can be misleading as it signals a narrow approach which ignores the wider potential in museums, archives and libraries of lifelong, informal learning for all.
To gain knowledge or information of; to ascertain by inquiry, study, or investigation; to acquire understanding of, or skill; as, to learn the way; to learn a lesson; to learn dancing; to learn to skate; to learn the violin; to learn the truth about something.
Fixed behavioural changes resulting from an individual's experiences.
Relatively permanent change in behavior as a result of such experiences as exploration, observation, and practice.
A relatively permanent change in behavior that occurs as the result of practice. Behavior changes due to maturation or temporary conditions of the organism (such as fatigue, the influence of drugs, adaptation) are not included.
A change to a system that alters it's future performance and is usually associated with changes to rules.
The process of acquiring knowledge, skills, attitudes, or values, through study, experience, or teaching, that causes a change of behavior that is persistent, measurable, and specified or allows an individual to formulate a new mental construct or revise a prior mental construct (conceptual knowledge such as attitudes or values). It is a process that depends on experience and leads to long-term changes in behavior potential. A student teaching
