Learning is a natural human process and numerous models have been put forward to explain this process, or the ways that people acquire skills. These models can be categorised into two main schools of thought; behaviourist and cognitive. The aim of this study was to apply a combined ‘wanting, needing, doing, feedback and digesting’ model of learning to evaluate a new first year undergraduate module taught in the Department of Geography at the University of Durham. The study illustrates five basic elements to learning and presents evidence to show how problems associated with the learning experience may be improved.
