Kandola and Fullerton have produced a six factor model of a LO:

According to Kolb, the learning cycle involves four processes that must be present for learning to occur:
Kolb includes this 'cycle of learning' as a central principle his experiential learning theory, typically expressed as four-stage cycle of learning, in which 'immediate or concrete experiences' provide a basis for 'observations and reflections'. Kolb's model therefore works on two levels - a four-stage cycle:
Affective: growth in feelings or emotional areas (Attitude)
Psychomotor: manual or physical skills (Skills)
