Perspectives on Learning

Rather than simply outlining the classical and modern theories of learning, this widely adopted text brings the material to life through case studies that engage students in debates about what really happens in classrooms. Students are encouraged to test the strengths and weaknesses of each theory so that, ultimately, they will learn to formulate their own philosophies of teaching and learning.

Review: Perspectives on Learning

User Review  - Nate Smith - Goodreads

My educational psychology books did a much better job of describing the varios theories of learning. This book is too concise. Each one of the major theories deserves entire volumes of books! Read full review

User Review  - Khalid Almoghrabi - Goodreads

a straight-forward introductory book on theories of learning. notably, behaviorism, constructivism and cognitive science with cases and clear examples. I recommend reading it for those who want to take a glimpse without being wet in philosophies of education :). Read full review
