Core text for Learning Theories in Education and Human Learning courses.

Through its succinct yet thorough overviews of current behavioral, cognitive and developmental theories, this text explores the many ways in which learning principles can be applied in a variety of educational settings, with a diverse population of learners. The author examines the relationship between learning and other topics of importance to educators-development, motivation, instruction, and self-regulation. Down-to-earth language, clear explanations, and specific examples of abstract concepts make this text ideal for students with minimal prior coursework in psychology. A detailed glossary of more than 300 technical terms further facilitates understanding, and a bibliography with more than 1,100 references encourages self-study.
