Understanding Development and Learning assists future teachers to develop their understanding of the process of learning. It seeks to enhance their abilities as educators by explaining the principles of educational psychology through contemporary research and ideas drawn from a range ofsources, including neuroeducation or neuroscience as it applies to education. Written specifically for a one-semester educational psychology subject, the text provides a concise explanation of the current and emerging theories in child development and educational psychology. The theoretical aspects are well matched to relevant examples of educational and classroom-basedscenarios to assist students with their own teaching practice development.
Michael C Nagel is an Associate Professor in the School of Science and Education at the University of the Sunshine Coast. Laura Scholes is a Research Project Manager in the School of Early Childhood, Faculty of Education, Queensland University of Technology.
