Overview

The field of educational psychology draws from a variety of diverse disciplines including human development across the life span, measurement and statistics, learning and motivation, and teaching. And within these different disciplines, many other fields are featured including psychology, anthropology, education, sociology, public health, school psychology, counseling, history, and philosophy. In fact, when taught at the college or university level, educational psychology is an ambitious course that undertakes the presentation of many different topics all tied together by the theme of how the individual can best function in an "educational" setting, loosely defined as anything from pre-school through adult education. Educational psychology can be defined as the application of what we know about learning and motivation, development, and measurement and statistics to educational settings (both school- and community-based).

Editorial Reviews

Lawerence Looks at Books
“SAGE Reference has carved a niche for itself by identifying new areas of professional or academic endeavor and producing well-written guides that help to define the fields for students or new professionals. Typically, these encyclopedias introduce the concepts and issues essential to the developing field of learning. Experts explore and explain both theory and practice. The history of the discipline and the development of professional standards also are surveyed. Biographical entries highlight the work of key contributors to that process. Other entries focus on the training necessary for professional participation and the specialties possible within the field. In this case, SAGE has applied its well-tested method to educational psychology. On some levels, educational psychology has been around for years, as both a career path and field of study. For decades academic and career counselors have guided students in making choices about their future. Researchers of language, learning and cognitive development have long studied peer influences, memory, creativity and other factors in relation to school children. Recently, this disparate areas of activity are increasingly viewed both as intergrally related and as an important specialty within the field of education. Many related areas of research involve this nexus of education and psychology. Individual academic achievement, classroom management, gender differences in learning, intelligence, social development, as well as testing and measurement all fall within the scope of this encyclopedia. Public polices have also impacted the role of psychology with a host of mandated educational directives on everything from standardized testing to drug prevention and sex education. Professional standards are addressed in discussions of national organizations, research methods and reaching. Such social factors as family, ethnicity and culture are all explored. From applied behavior analysis to vicarious reinforcement, overviews of theories outline concepts basic to the field of educational psychology. Each of the 275 scholarly articles give sample suggestions for further research. All told, the set provides a useful instruction to a bourgeoning area of study and is highly recommended for academic libraries.” -John R. M. Lawrence— John R.M. Lawrence

Library Journal

Editor Salkind (psychology & research in education, Univ. of Kansas; Introduction to Theories of Human Development) here synthesizes expert-written contributions centering on the complex field of educational psychology and drawing on a range of disciplines: anthropology, psychology, sociology, education, public health, counseling, history, and philosophy. Advancing Salkind's seminal three-volume Encyclopedia of Human Development(Sage, 2005) and broader in scope than Barry J. Zimmerman and Dale H. Schunk's Educational Psychology: A Century of Contributions(Lawrence Erlbaum, 2002), which reads like a who's who in the field, this two-volume set succeeds in its stated aim of opening up the discipline of educational psychology to a wide general audience. The 275 topically organized entries and a reader's guide comprising 19 key themes (e.g., classroom achievement, language development, research methods and statistics) combine with See also references, further readings, and an extensive index to create a framework from which to educate and elucidate fundamental information on this important topic.

Meet the Author

Neil J. Salkind received his PhD from the University of Maryland in Human Development. After teaching for 35 years at the University of Kansas, he remains a professor emeritus in the department of psychology and research in education, where he continues to collaborate with colleagues and work with students. His early interests were in the area of children’s cognitive development, and after research in the areas of cognitive style and (what was then known as) hyperactivity, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of North Carolina’s Bush Center for Child and Family Policy. His work then changed direction to focus on child and family policy, specifically the impact of alternative forms of public support on various child and family outcomes. He has delivered more than 150 professional papers and presentations, written more than 100 trade and textbooks, and is the author of Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics (SAGE), Theories of Human Development (SAGE), and Exploring Research (Prentice Hall). He has edited several encyclopedias, including the Encyclopedia of Human Development, the Encyclopedia of Measurement and Statistics, and the recently published Encyclopedia of Research Design. He was editor of Child Development Abstracts and Bibliography for 13 years and lives in Lawrence, Kansas, where he likes to read, swim with the River City Sharks, letterpress print using 1820s technology, bake brownies (see the Excel version of Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics for the recipe at http://www.statisticsforpeople.com), and poke around old Volvos and old houses.
