Based on the four theories of learning previously discussed, you must have drawn conclusion that learning is a complex process that brings together cognitive, emotional, and external (environmental and social) influences and experiences that involves learners acquiring, enhancing, or adjusting her/his knowledge, values, skills, or views of the world.
