The Routledge International Handbook of Learning

by Peter (University of Surrey, UK) Jarvis

Part of the Routledge International Handbooks of Education Series

The Routledge International Handbook of Learning Synopsis

As our understanding of learning focuses on the whole person rather than individual aspects of learning, so the process of learning is beginning to be studied from a wide variety of perspectives and disciplines. This handbook presents a comprehensive overview of the contemporary research into learning: it brings together a diverse range of specialities with chapters written by leading scholars throughout the world from a wide variety of different approaches. The International Handbook of Learning captures the complexities of the learning process in seven major parts. Its 54 chapters are sub-divided in seven parts: Learning and the person: senses, cognitions, emotions, personality traits and learning styles Learning across the lifespan Life-wide learning Learning across the disciplines: covering everything from anthropology to neuroscience Meaning systems' interpretation Learning and disability Historical and contemporary learning theorists. Written by international experts, this book is the first comprehensive multi-disciplinary analysis of learning, packing a diverse collection of research into one accessible volume.
