The ideas on this page have been adopted and adapted to all kinds of learning situation, but it should be noted that they refer to learning from experience or discovery (such as situated learning) rather than to taught (or "reception" learning, as Ausubel calls it) or rote learning.

Kolb (1984) provides one of the most useful (but contestable) descriptive models available of the adult learning process, inspired by the work of Kurt Lewin.
The claimed Lewin cycle: from Concrete Experience, through Reflective Observation, to Abstract Conceptualisation and then Active Experimentation, leading to new Experience.

Despite many claims, Lewin did not develop a learning "cycle" as such. See his paper on "Field Theory and Learning" (1942; ref. below)
