Abstract:

As our understanding of learning focuses on the whole person rather than individual aspects of learning, so the process of learning is beginning to be studied from a wide variety of perspectives and disciplines. This handbook presents a comprehensive overview of the contemporary research into learning: it brings together a diverse range of specialties with chapters written by leading scholars throughout the world from a wide variety of different approaches. The International Handbook of Learning captures the complexities of the learning process in seven major parts. Its 55 chapters are sub-divided in seven parts: (1) Learning and the person: senses, cognitions, emotions, personality traits and learning styles; (2) Learning across the lifespan; (3) Life-wide learning; (4) Learning across the disciplines: covering everything from anthropology to neuroscience; (5) Meaning systems' interpretation; (6) Learning and disability; and (7) Historical and contemporary learning theorists. Written by international experts, this book is the first comprehensive multi-disciplinary analysis of learning, packing a diverse collection of research into one accessible volume. Part I, Learning and the Person, contains the following: (1) Learning and the Senses (Paul Martin and Viv Martin); (2) Learning Cognitions/Cognitive Learning/Learning and Cognition (Knud Illeris); (3) Learning a Role: Becoming a Nurse (Michelle Camilleri); (4) Self-Constructed Activity, Work Analysis, and Occupational Training: an Approach to Learning Objects for Adults (Marc Durand); (5) Emotional Intelligence (Betty Rudd); (6) Language and Learning (Bernard Camilleri); (7) Gender and Learning--Feminist Perspectives (Julia Preece); (8) Identity and Learning (Lyn Tett); (9) Thinking Styles and Learning (Li-Fang Zhang); and (10) Non-Learning (Peter Jarvis).

Taylor). Part iii, Learning Sites, contains the following: (23) Informal Learning--Everyday Living (Paul Hager); (24) Self-Directed Learning (Katarina Popovic); (25) Learning at the Site of Work (Stephen Billett); (26) Organisational Learning won't be Turned off (Bente Elkjaer); (27) E-learning (m-learning) (Susannah Quinsee); (28) Sleep-dependent Learning (Daan R. van der Veen and Simon N.
