Overview

This book is a systematic introduction to learning psychology. It describes, analyzes and explains learning by means of nineteen scenarios from everyday situations. The reader may therefore connect theoretical considerations with experiences he or she can easily follow. Several scenarios stem from family situations, others from school and business, and still others refer to very individual learning processes. Having worked through the nineteen scenarios the reader will be acquainted with the important learning theories: behavioristic, cognitive, social-cognitive as well as the Gestaltists'.

From the Publisher
"[Steiner] is. . . to be congratulated on producing a groundbreaking contribution. The scenarios included are interesting, scholarly, and relevant. . . . The book could easily be the basis for some lively discussions and debates about learning theories. . . . We recommend its use as a supplementary book in learning courses." Contemporary Psychology
