Cumulative Learning TheoryThe following chapters in Robert M. Gagné's book present his explanation of the nature of human intellectual development, cumulative learning theory.
By Robert M. Gagné
Robert Mills Gagné was an educational psychologist who served as Professor in the Department of Educational Research at Florida State University. He is best known for his theory on the conditions of learning and on the nine events of instruction.
The body of Gagné's work is sometimes summarized as the Gagné Assumption. Gagné's theory stipulates that different types of learning exist, and that different instructional approaches are required to maximize the achievement objectives of each specific learner. The focus of his theory is on the retention and honing of intellectual skills.
Gagné's theory proposes that there are Nine Essential Steps of Instruction:
Learning & Human Development
His Cumulative Learning Theory provides an alternative to the concept of instructional sequencing which was widely used.
