Learning is among the most basic of human activities. The study of, and research into, learning forms a central part of educational studies. The well-respected and established authors, Jarvis and Parker, not only focus on the psychological processes of human learning, but they also examine the importance of the relationship between the body and the mind. For the first time, this book considers how our neurological, biological, emotional and spiritual faculties all impact on human learning.
Topics covered include:

  • the biology of learning

  • personality and human learning

  • thinking and learning styles

  • gender and human learning

  • life cycle development and human learning

  • emotional intelligence and learning

  • morality and human learning

  • learning in the social context.

Drawing on material from the worlds of science and social science, and with contributions from international authors, this book will be of interest to academics in a wide range of disciplines.
