According to Rogers, the main purpose of education should be to nurture learners instead of constructing their academic knowledge. Rogers believed that there were two types of learning, cognitive which is meaningless and experiential which is significant. Cognitive learning includes academic knowledge experiential learning includes applied knowledge. Experiential learning attends to the needs and desires of the learner. Rogers believes that experiential learning is initiated by the self, involves personal interest and development, knowledge is evaluated by the learner, and it impacts the learner positively.   Read Full Lesson: Rogers’ Theory of Experiential Learning
