Learning, forgetting and remembering.
80% of what has been learned is forgotten after one month!
A complete learning process is composed of three phases: Assimilation, Consolidation, Application.
The phase of Assimilation is the proper learning action of discovering something new. During the Consolidation the knowledge and skills are trained and retained with the objective of using them during the Application phase.
According to research by Michael M. Lombardo and Robert W. Eichinger of the Center for Creative Leadership:
- Approximately 70% of learning takes place from experiments on workstation, tasks and problem solving,
- Approximately 20% of learning is based on feedback and interaction with others,
- Approximately 10% of learning takes place from courses and reading.
In conclusion, research has proved that:
Everyone learns at
his own pace
Knowledge assimilation is
more than just learning
Individual follow-up and
feedback is essential
