I tend to lean towards Cognitivism and Constructivism because I believe that adult learners respond better to these approaches which emphasis learners being an active participant in their learning and constructor of their own learning respectively. There are times when behaviorism is an appropriate approach to use as well.

I tend to believe in Directive, guided discovery and exploratory learning architectures which align primarily with Cognitivism and constructivism learning theories. These allow learners to have some say in how they learn.

I am curious to see where others draw from. Obviously, different learning problems and audiences lend to different approaches,but what is the most common approach that you use?
