Carl Rogers was an American psychologist who contributed significantly to the humanistic approach in psychology. 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.
