Significant Learning

Dr. L. Dee Fink asked the question “What are the ways in which learning can be significant?”

Fink created a a conceptual framework for learning.  Fink defines learning in terms of change.  For learning to occur, there has to be some kind of change in the learner. No change, no learning. And significant learning requires that there be some kind of lasting change that is important in terms of the learner’s life.

In my own experience, learning a second language has taught me how to learn.  More importantly, it taught me to sincerely care about the country and people whose language I am learning.
