A comprehensive look at the key theoretical principles, concepts, and research findings about learning, with special attention paid to how these concepts and principles can be applied in today's classrooms. This widely used and respected resource introduces readers to the key theoretical principles, concepts, and research findings about learning and helps them see how to apply that theory and research as educators. Learning Theories begins with a discussion of the relationship between learning theory and instruction.

It then looks at the neuroscience of learning. Six chapters cover the major theories of learning -- behaviorism, social cognitive theory, information processing theory, cognitive learning processes, and constructivism.

The following three chapters cover key topics related to learning -- motivation, self-regulated learning, and contextual influences. And the final chapter, Next Steps, helps students consolidate their views about learning.

The 8th Edition has been significantly updated with a number of new features and the most current thinking and research.
