Human Learning by Peter Jarvis
Book DescriptionLearning 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.

Adult Learning in the Social Context, Paperback (June 2014)» View all books by Peter Jarvis
This title is a logical progression from 'The Sociology of Adult and Continuing Education.' The author takes a completely new approach to the subject and puts forward a model of adult learning which is analysed in depth. This model arises from the results of a research project in which adults analysed their own learning experiences.
