The market-leading education textbook on learning theories, Human Learning looks at a broad range of theoretical perspectives, including behaviorist, social cognitive, cognitive, constructivist, contextual, and developmental theories. It describes associationistic processes, such as classical and operant conditioning, as well as more complex and distinctly human processes such as metacognition, self-regulated learning, and critical thinking. Using a many concrete examples and specific classroom applications, plus a lucid, conversational writing style that truly speaks to students, the author engages students from the start, and makes the concepts, principles, and theories related to human learning and cognition meaningful. The new Seventh Edition features a condensed format, which ideally accommodates typical semester-long courses, coverage of a variety of new topics that have emerged in recent research, and significant updates to include such information as technological innovations in instruction and the neurological underpinnings of learning and behavior.

Editorial Reviews

From reviews of the text:   “What particularly distinguishes the Ormrod textbook from other textbooks of this kind is its writing style … it is highly engaging. Dr. Ormrod speaks directly to her readers and shares engaging stories and examples, often from her own life and of a personal nature. This sharing makes the content come alive for readers and engages them. Readers feel as if Dr. Ormrod is having a personal conversation with them, never “talking down to them.” – Shawn M. Glynn, University of Georgia   “This textbook is extremely useful and valuable for college instructors, faculty, and graduate students (teachers and students) in educational programs .... [It has a] great emphasis on using the lens of theoretical pedagogies and theories to explain how educational psychology applies in our real world and instructional practice.... The activities and examples are amazingly engaging for learners to build connection with their authentic environments.” – Yashu Yang, University of Nebraska - Lincoln   “I find the writing very clear and quite refreshing. The key strengths [are] the comprehensiveness and scope of the content, discussion of recent research and theories, personal introductions to every chapter, great attention to detail and a summary at the end of each chapter.” – Anandi Nagarajan, Rutgers University & Rider University
