Robert Mills Gagné (August 21, 1916 – April 28, 2002) was an American educational psychologist best known for his "Conditions of Learning". Gagné pioneered the science of instruction during World War II when he worked with the Army Air Corps training pilots. He went on to develop a series of studies and works that simplified and explained what he and others believed to be 'good instruction.' Gagné was also involved in applying concepts of instructional theory to the design of computer-based training and multimedia-based learning [reference?].
Gagné's work is sometimes summarized as the Gagné Assumption. The assumption is that different types of learning exist, and that different instructional conditions are most likely to bring about these different types of learning.
- In high school at North Andover, Massachusetts, he decided to study psychology and perhaps be a psychologist after reading psychological texts. In his valedictory speech of 1932, he said the science of psychology should be used to relieve the burdens of human life.
- Scholarship to Yale University. Received A.B. in 1937.
- Graduate work at Brown University, where he studied "conditioned operate response" of white rats under various conditions as a part of his Ph. D. thesis.
- First college teaching job in 1940, at Connecticut College for Women. His initial studies of people rather than rats were interrupted by World War II.
- First year of war, at Psychological Research Unit No. 1, Maxwell Field, Alabama, where he administered and scored aptitude tests to choose and sort aviation cadets.
- Second year of war, at officer school in Miami Beach. Commissioned a second lieutenant, and assigned to School of Aviation Medicine, Randolph Field, Fort Worth, Texas.
- After the war, he held a temporary faculty position at Florida State University. Returned to Connecticut College for Women.
- In 1949, he accepted an offer to join the US Air Force organization that became the Air Force Personnel and Training Research Center, where he was research director of the Perceptual and Motor Skills Laboratory.
- In 1958, he returned to academia as professor at Princeton University, where his research shifted focus to the learning of problem solving and the learning of mathematics.
- In 1962, he joined the American Institutes for Research, where he wrote his first book, "The Conditions of Learning."
- Spent additional time in academia at the University of California, Berkley, where he worked with graduate students. With W. K. Roher, he presented a paper, "Instructional Psychology", to the Annual Review of Psychology.
- In 1969, he found a lasting home at Florida State University. Collaborated with L. J. Briggs on "Principles of Learning". He published the second and third editions of "The Conditions of Learning." 
Personal life 
Gagné's wife, Pat, is a trained biologist. They have a son, Sam, and daughter, Ellen. Ellen is an educational psychologist at the University of Georgia. Non-professional pursuits include constructing wood furniture and reading modern fiction. In 1993, he retired to Signal Mountain, Tennessee with his wife.
Learning Process 
Gagné's theory stipulates that there are several types and levels of learning, and each of these types and levels requires instruction that is tailored to meet the needs of the pupil. While Gagne's learning blueprint can cover all aspects of learning, the focus of the theory is on the retention and honing of intellectual skills. The theory has been applied to the design of instruction in all fields, though in its original formulation special attention was given to military training settings.
Five Categories of Learning 
- Intellectual skills: Create individual competence and ability to respond to stimuli.
- Cognitive strategies: Capability to learn, think, and remember
- Verbal information: Rote memorization of names, faces, dates, phone numbers, etc.
- Motor skills: Capablitily to learn to drive, ride a bike, draw a straight line, etc.
- Attitudes: Ingrained bias towards different ideas, people, situation, and may affect how one acts towards these things.
Each category requires different methods in order for the particular skill set to be learned.
Eight Ways to Learn 
- Signal Learning: A general response to a signal. Like a dog responding to a command.
- Stimulus-Response Learning: A precise response to a distinct stimulus.
- Chaining: A chain of two or more stimulus-response connections is acquired.
- Verbal Association: The learning of chains that are verbal.
- Discrimination Learning: The ability to make different responses to similar-appearing stimuli.
- Concept Learning: A common response to a class of stimuli.
- Rule Learning. Learning a chain of two or more concepts.
- Problem Solving. A kind of learning that requires "thinking."
Designing Instruction 
Skills are to be learned at the lowest level and mastered before proceeding. An instructor should use positive reinforcement and repetition, with each new skill building upon previously acquired skills.
Steps of Planning Instruction 
- Identify the types of learning outcomes: Each outcome may have prerequisite knowledge or skills that must be identified.
- Identify the internal conditions or processes the learner must have to achieve the outcomes.
- Identify the external conditions or instruction needed to achieve the outcomes.
- Specify the learning context.
- Record the characteristics of the learners.
- Select the media for instruction.
- Plan to motivate the learners.
- Test the instruction with learners in the form of formative evaluation.
- After the instruction has been used, summative evaluation is used the judge the effectiveness of the instruction. problem solving
Nine Steps of Instruction 
- Gain attention: Present stimulus to ensure reception of instruction.
- Tell the learners the learning objective: What will the pupil gain from the instruction?
- Stimulate recall of prior learning: Ask for recall of existing relevant knowledge.
- Present the stimulus: Display the content.
- Provide learning guidance
- Elicit performance: Learners respond to demonstrate knowledge.
- Provide feedback: Give informative feedback on the learner's performance.
- Assess performance: More performance and more feedback, to reinforce information.
- Enhance retention and transfer to other contexts
Evaluation of Instruction 
- Have the objectives been met?
- Is the new program better than the previous one?
- What additional effects does the new program include?
The purpose is to supply data on feasibility and efficiency to develop and improve the course.
Evaluation is concerned with the effectiveness of the course or program regarding the student’s performance. Based on the student's performance, measures are taken of the kind of student capabilities the program is intended to establish.
When objectively analyzing the condition for learning Gagné says: “Since the purpose of instruction is learning, the central focus for rational derivation of instructional techniques is the human learner. Development of rationally sound instructional procedures must take into account learner characteristics such as initiate capacities, experimental maturity, and current knowledge states. Such factors become parameters of the design of any particular program of instruction”
