9780023894824: Human Learning

Human Learning, fifth edition, is the leading text on learning theories applied to education.  It covers a broad range of learning theories, including behaviorist, social cognitive, cognitive, and developmental.  Complex learning and cognition, including metacognition, transfer, and social processes in knowledge construction are also covered, as is motivation.  Coverage demonstrates, through the author's extremely lucid and engaging prose, how different concepts relate to one another.  The book provides dozens of proven examples, and emphasizes meaningful learning that makes the fundamentals of these theories comprehensible to students with little or no prior coursework in psychology.  Key revisions to this book include a thoroughly updated section on behaviorism, a new, separate chapter on the developmental theories of Piaget and Vygotsky, and a reorganized motivation section.

From the Publisher:

A thorough, straightforward introduction to human learning. Presentation, topic choice, and language are intended for education majors, and included are a wealth of educational examples and applications. The well-balanced treatment of different perspectives on learning teaches students that each perspective has validity, and that different situations call for different approaches. While the background and roots of learning theory are thoroughly discussed, the emphasis is clearly on contemporary perspectives and developments.

From the Back Cover:

This leading book in learning theories explains principles and theories of human learning in a lucid and engaging fashion and lays out the application of those theories and principles to educational practice. Covers many topics throughout the book: chaining, cognitive aspects of applied behavior analysis, constructivist and contextual views of learning, effects of verbalization and enactment, dichotomies in long-term memory, mental theories, development of expertise, effects of alternative forms of assessment, self-regulated learning and epistemological beliefs, self-worth theory, and internalized motivation.
