    The entire sentence seems somewhat stilted, though.

    Re: insight on/into

    I'm not a teacher...

    But which preposition is correct to you?
    Definitely into.

    Insight on is most definitely not the correct usage.

    Insight implies 'deep' understanding; a thorough knowledge; knowing something through and through; a piercing perception. Into works well with these meanings, but on doesn't.
