This work offers a very current and comprehensive look at the key theoretical principles, concepts, and research findings about learning. Special attention is paid to how these concepts and principles can be applied in today’s classrooms. In this essential resource, students are introduced to and see how to apply the key theoretical principles, concepts, and research findings about learning. The book begins with a discussion of the relationship between learning theory and instruction. It then looks at the neuroscience of learning. Five chapters cover the major theories of learning—behaviorism, social cognitive theory, information processing theory, and constructivism.  The following four chapters cover key topics related to learning—cognitive learning processes, motivation, self-regulated learning, and contextual influences. The final chapter, Next Steps, helps students consolidate their views about learning. Throughout, the book features numerous applications.

Editorial Reviews

From reviews of the text:   “The combination of detailed explanation, broad coverage, and application suggestions makes this ideal for a course on learning and motivation for teachers and educators. … The depth of presentation is sufficiently deep to be useful in a graduate level course but does not presume prior knowledge at a level that requires extra effort to provide background information.” — Jerrell Cassady, Ball State University    “It is a comprehensive resource for the key learning theories affecting education at this time. ... The ideas are presented in a readable form and create a nice backdrop to a course and reference for thinking about learning theory.” — Kenneth E. Hay, Indiana University    “The fact I returned to it, after trying other books, speaks to my support of this text as one of the best on the market.” — Kathleen K. Whitson, University of North Texas
