Learning can take place either consciously or unconsciously. Various behavioural changes occur as a result of maturity; some of these changes are permanent, while others arise as a result of drug use, sickness, or weariness; these changes are transient. However, behavioural change generated by learning is neither too permanent (as caused by maturation) nor too transient (as caused by factors like illness, fatigue, drugs etc.). Learning alters the organism, and the changes in the organism are largely permanent. Learning cannot be considered a gift or contribution from our ancestors. As a result, the environment is intended to impact and shape our learning. Thus, learning may be defined as a relatively permanent change in behaviour as a result of experience. * Learning is the alteration of behaviour as a result of experience and training.
