The purpose of this paper is to highlight challenges and opportunities that surround the process of learning with an emphasis on higher-order learning and learning as behavior. Higher-order learning has been conceptualized as learning behavior that can be learned.
The holistic framework regarding higher-order learning has been proposed on the basis of systems perspective and critical thinking of previous contributions.
A review and analysis of learning, especially higher-order learning, resulted in its conceptualization and guidelines on how to implement it. Higher-order learning is a learning behavior that can be learned and implemented in many situations in complex social and organizational practices.
Conclusions and remarks provided in this paper need further empirical testing and validation.
Implications for practitioners have been identified in terms of recommendations for implementing higher-order learning as a learning behavior that can be learned.
Dedicated implementation of higher-order learning and learning as behavior can bring true change to the current social and economic paradigm and lasting solutions to the so-called “stubborn problems” of pollution, abuse, destruction and poverty, and can cause systemic transformation of our declining society.
Higher-order learning has been conceptualized and challenges surrounding it have been identified along with suggestions on how to overcome them.
