Handbook of developmental education
This comprehensive handbook has brought together the leading practitioners and researchers in the field of developmental education to focus on the developmental learning agenda. This work advocates a process approach to education where learners were characterized in terms of specific behavioral areas. Learning style differences are recognized, along with the premise that learning occurs at different rates. Alternative learning settings like industrial education centers and alternative learning centers provide a focus, for which lifelong learning is viewed as a matter of survival for American employees and employers. Handbook of Developmental Education begins with a description of the developmental process as a holistic approach to the development of the whole person. The emotional state of the individual is of critical importance. Curriculum theory is addressed, followed by information on learning centers and human factors research. Educators and educational researchers will find a wealth of material in this volume.
