Derived from Anita Woolfolk's market-leading Educational Psychology, Eleventh Edition, the most thorough, accessible, and authoritative text on the market, the Active Learning Edition breaks the material into manageable modules. To provide customers with an alternative version to the longer chapters of the standard 11th Edition, that version's 15 chapters now appear as 40 brief modules, which are easy to cover in shorter academic terms and will make learning easier for students. In addition to presenting comprehensive, expert coverage of all topics teachers need to understand about how students learn and all the classroom applications for which the author is justly renowned, the modules are grouped into clusters that allow for deeper context and background for each topic. Further, each module is a self-contained learning unit, with learning objectives and both in-text and online review materials that provide immediate reinforcement of key concepts and build students'confidence in their grasp of the material. Adding to its interactivity are 14 end-of-cluster Active Learning Connections features filled with activities that direct students to new and emerging technologies, connecting them with one another and other students through wikis, blogs, and many other useful technology resources and web sites.

Ebbens, S. \ Ettekoven, S. \ 2005
learning - teaching - methodology - teaching methods - efficiency - knowledge transfer

Effectief leren speelt in alle onderwijssituaties een belangrijke rol. In alle onderwijssituaties moeten leerlingen basiskennis opdoen en basisvaardigheden aanleren. Dit basisboek geeft door middel van de instructiestrategie van directe instructie een groot aantal praktische adviezen aan op welke wijze docenten dat kunnen vormgeven, of hoe docententeams dat samen kunnen doen en hoe ze van daaruit een begin kunnen maken met activerend leren. Het boek is rijkelijk voorzien van praktische adviezen en voorbeelden uit de praktijk. De instructiestrategie van directe instructie is gericht op het onder leiding van de docent effectief aanleren van basiskennis en basisvaardigheden. Door middel van een duidelijke structuur in de les, heldere instructie, geleide en ongeleide oefening, directe gevraagde en ongevraagde feedback ontstaat een ontspannen leerklimaat. In een dergelijk leerklimaat is het mogelijk een begin te maken met activerend leren. Daarbij blijft de docent nog redelijk centraal staan.

Deel IV handelt over het instructieproces. Daarin komen traditionele en - vooral - nieuwe taken en rollen van de docent aan de orde. Deze inleiding in de onderwijspsychologie biedt de lezer verschillende vormen van hulp: aan het eind van elk hoofdstuk literatuursuggesties, verwerkingsopdrachten en een glossary met per hoofdstuk de centrale begrippen. Door de vele voorbeelden, illustraties en casussen is het boek ook goed bruikbaar in de lerarenopleidingen.

Thinking, fast and slow [Monograph]
Kahneman, D. \ 2011
judgement - decision making - thinking - reasoning - heuristics - mind - psychology

In the international bestseller, Thinking, Fast and Slow, Daniel Kahneman, the renowned psychologist and winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics, takes us on a groundbreaking tour of the mind and explains the two systems that drive the way we think. System 1 is fast, intuitive, and emotional; System 2 is slower, more deliberative, and more logical. The impact of overconfidence on corporate strategies, the difficulties of predicting what will make us happy in the future, the profound effect of cognitive biases on everything from playing the stock market to planning our next vacation—each of these can be understood only by knowing how the two systems shape our judgments and decisions. Engaging the reader in a lively conversation about how we think, Kahneman reveals where we can and cannot trust our intuitions and how we can tap into the benefits of slow thinking. He offers practical and enlightening insights into how choices are made in both our business and our personal lives—and how we can use different techniques to guard against the mental glitches that often get us into trouble. Winner of the National Academy of Sciences Best Book Award and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize and selected by The New York Times Book Review as one of the ten best books of 2011, Thinking, Fast and Slow is destined to be a classic.
