Theories of learning by Ernest R Hilgard( Book )

195 editions published between 1948 and 2006 in 7 languages and held by 4,626 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Learning is a central topic within American psychology, and its problems have provided the occasion for hundreds of experimental studies. The science of learning remains in a state of flux, in part because we have not yet reached agreement upon the most appropriate concepts to use in stating our problems and in interpreting our data. This book represents an attempt to provide in one place an introduction to the major theories of learning which are current among psychologists doing research in this important field of study. The aim is to see theory in relation to experiment. Each of the several theories is therefore illustrated by a selected topic within the field of experimentation. The topic chosen is in each case one actively studied by adherents to the theory. The theory can be judged both by its provocativeness in suggesting experiments, and by its success in dealing systematically with the data which emerge from such experiments.

Hilgard and Marquis' Conditioning and learning by Ernest R Hilgard( Book )

66 editions published between 1940 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,804 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Theories of learning which make use of conditioning principles are not related in a simple manner to the facts from conditioning experiments. This book represents an effort to place the facts and theories into some sort of order through critical exposition. The net result is not a finished theory; in many instances we have found it necessary to point to several alternative conceptions. The examination of the relation of conditioning to other basic learning experiments has at other points revealed serious gaps in our knowledge which future experimentation must fill. Although conditioning has sometimes been proposed as a basic concept for the fields of cerebral physiology, of mental hygiene and personality, and of the higher thought processes, we have found it desirable to place greatest emphasis upon the relation of conditioning to learning theory. In the later chapters we have surveyed the possibilities of applying conditioning concepts within some of the other fields"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2014 APA, all rights reserved)

Educational psychology by Lee J Cronbach( Book )

17 editions published between 1958 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The last decade has seen important changes of emphasis within general psychology that make its theories more pertinent to education. Ten years ago the dominant psychology was that of Hull and his followers. Their emphasis on stimulus-response connections, reduction of primary drives, and reinforcement, while useful for explaining the learning of single tasks in the laboratory, seemed not to be very enlightening to the educator. Today the general psychologist is as concerned as the educator with meanings. Harlow demonstrates how long-continued experience facilitates learning in monkeys. Piaget and Inhelder demonstrate the emergence of disciplined thought from the child's long years of trial and error. Skinner proposes to design learning sequences such that each success on one question makes the next question more meaningful. Underwood shows that forgetting is primarily the result of interference from prior associations. Osgood, Kendler, and others advance from Hull to a theory of mediated learning. At the same time, motivational theory has broadened to recognize that mastery and understanding of the environment seems to be a basic source of satisfaction. White's paper (1959) on the need for "competence" climaxes a substantial series of advances on this front which have included Harlow's observations on manipulation and the work of McClelland and others on achievement motivation. The same decade has seen vigorous re-examination of the purposes and quality of American education. The first great result was a marked extension of testing and counseling, of special programs for the talented and the handicapped, and, in the elementary school, of more flexible administrative arrangements for teaching. These efforts put well-established psychological knowledge to use. The second great result has been radical curriculum revision. In science and mathematics where this work has been carried furthest, the new curricula emphasize not the mastery of facts and calculations but the understanding of scientific and mathematical reasoning. The teacher is called upon to promote understanding and curiosity, and to capitalize upon the pupil's intuitions and discoveries. Cognitive development thus has become the central aim in educational reform just at the time when substantial psychological knowledge about these processes has become available. To emphasize cognitive development in this edition required no radical change of viewpoint, since the first edition made meaning the first principle of learning. The chapters dealing with intellectual development and the attainment of concepts have been augmented to deal with the theory of Piaget and such topics as "learning by discovery" and "programed instruction." In contemporary experimentation and theory the psychology of learning and the psychology of development are inseparable. Even developments once considered to be "purely physiological" are now known to depend on experience. The teacher cannot gain a full understanding of the pupil unless every bit of learning is seen in its developmental context. I believe that it is a mistake to divide educational psychology for teachers into separate courses in "development" and "learning." In the first edition learning and development were interwoven; I hope that in this revision the treatment has become truly integrated"--Preface.
