Theories of Learning documents the various learning theories which have been a hundred years in the making. This unique compilation of theories assembles each of the learning theories grouped together for your convenience. This impressive collection includes theorists of all generations including Werthheimer, Hull, Pavlov, Thorndike, Tolman, Guthrie, Bolles, Skinner, Lashley, Estes, Piaget, and Hebb. No one theory could definitively explain the process of learning. Yet the conjunction of each theorist´s learning theory can assemble a definitive classification of theory commonly known as theories of learning. Certain theories such as Hull´s are impressive in their complication in use of formulas, whereas other theories such as Piaget are impressive in their simplicity. As you will find by viewing the various theories of learning, it is quite impossible to agree on a single theory. 1. Language: English. Narrator: C. Scatena.

Sitting inside a class, one student finds it easy to absorb information while another struggles with it. While one learner may excel in a particular subject, another may do well in all the subjects. Trainees go through the same training to be graded differently according to the level of information they have absorbed and the understanding they show. Learning is a complex process. It takes years for a person to understand certain subjects and he still works his way out of life with limited information because it is difficult to imbibe the overwhelming amount of knowledge present in the world today. Depending on how information is absorbed, processed, and retained, a number of learning theories have been formulated which help us understand the process of learning in individuals. A number of factors decide the manner in which knowledge is acquired or information is processed by a person changing their views on certain subjects and forming new views about certain things. Learning is related with different parts of the brain which plays an important role in processing any information that we receive. Every individual processes the information differently based on their strengths and weaknesses. Educational psychology endeavors to gain an understanding about the different behaviors of an individual to a piece of information. This is used in analyzing the type of learning that can affect the individual the most. Different schools of thoughts are available for finding out how education and information is absorbed by a learner. This book aims at exploring the different learning theories that currently exist and understanding the roots of the theory and gaining an insight into the reasons why these theories exist. 1.

A novel of seduction and madness, hate and love, set in the world of Argentinean academia and animated by the spirits of Wittgenstein, Rousseau, Nabokov, and Bolano. A student at the Buenos Aires School of Philosophy attempts to put her life (academically and romantically) in the service of a professor whose nearly forgotten theories of violence she plans to popularize and radicalize - against his wishes. Meanwhile a young couple - a documentary filmmaker and a blogger - engage in a series of cerebral and sexual misadventures. In a novel crammed with philosophy, group sex, revolutionary politics, and a fighting fish named Yorick, Oloixarac leads her characters and the listener through dazzling and digressive intellectual byways to an Internet hack that confronts us with a catalog of historical violence, devastation, and atrocity throughout the centuries. Spellbinding, strange, groundbreaking, and already translated into several languages, Savage Theories is the debut of a major new voice on the world stage. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ana Grosse.

Each theory within these four classifications is attached to a theorist describing in depth the details to his or her theory. These theories of personality are 100 years in the making, and although the theories may conflict one another, each theory binds the four classifications into a single unit of personality theory. Learning about a theorist´s theory is to learn about the individual. These great minds would document their work for all to see for years to come. Enjoy this unique compilation of their work put together as a single unit describing the theories of personality in detail. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bettye Zoller Seitz.

Die ´´Theorie der feinen Menschen´´ ist eine Erzählung aus dem tiefen Inneren unserer feinen Gesellschaft. Sie handelt vom Kampf um Prestige, Wirtschaftsverbrechen und Business Punks. Es ist eine epische Geschichte von Verrat, Familie und Geld. Im Grunde ein bisschen wie die ´´Sopranos´´*. Nur in live. Als hätte Shakespeare ein Praktikum bei der Deutschen Bank absolviert und aus Verzweiflung darüber eine Komödie geschrieben. *Menschen, die vor 1977 geboren sind, ersetzen ´´Sopranos´´ einfach durch ´´Dallas´´. 1.

In these 24 lectures, probe the field of ´´human development´´; the science that studies how we learn and develop psychologically, from birth to the end of life. This very young science not only enables us to understand children and help them develop optimally, but also gives us profound insights into who we are as adults. Professor Watson introduces you to the six theories that have had perhaps the greatest influence on this field. Each of them has had a pervasive impact on the way we think about and see ourselves. Among the theories you´ll encounter are Sigmund Freud´s psychodynamic theory (including such concepts as the Oedipus Complex and the five stages of psycho-sexual development), Erik Erikson´s psycho-social theory (which gave rise to the term ´´identity crisis´´), and Albert Bandura´s social learning theory (influential in such areas as the effect of media violence on children). You´ll meet the people who formulated each theory, become familiar with their philosophical backgrounds and the historical contexts in which they worked, and study the specific processes of human development that each theory describes. Along the way, you´ll evaluate the strength and weaknesses of each theory. How do these six theories complement or contradict one another? What do they tell us, as a whole, about human development? These lectures aren´t simply about learning, behavior, and relationships in youth, but at any age. Taken as a whole, they provide our best answers to the questions of human nature-how we learn, adapt, and become who we are at every stage in life.
