Educational Psychology for Learning and Teaching explores the development of the learner over time, the learning process, individual differences in the classroom, as well as educational psychology in contemporary classrooms. The text caters for those who are planning to work with any age range from early childhood to adolescence and beyond. This seventh edition expands on Dynamic Systems Theory, the Information Processing Model and critical thinking around standardised testing. You will be presented with multiple views of learning, rather than just one, prompting you to think critically and develop your own philosophy of learning and teaching, while also drawing on the various theories.
