Educational Psychology:The impact of psychological research on education

Description

This new text provides an engaging and stimulating introduction to the central concepts, themes and ongoing research in educational psychology today. 

Education Psychology clearly and concisely presents the key ideas, but equally encourages undergraduate and postgraduate psychology students to go beyond the text to read primary sources, and to develop an awareness of the controversies, complexities, and unresolved issues in a topic area.

At the heart of the text is also an emphasis on developing the skills of how to read and use journal articles and how to critically evaluate sources of information.


Features

·        Learning outcomes for each chapter help students get a handle on what they should achieve from each chapter

·        Questions are included throughout the book to focus attention on a question or issue by exploring resources and literature beyond this book.

·        Activity sections present ideas for further research and group discussion or debate

·        Special boxed sections highlight and explore key concepts and underlying psychological theories, recent research in the area, methodological issues, and current debates and unresolved issues

·        A website accompanying the book provides starter links to primary journal papers for each topic

Reader Review(s)

"A comprehensive and up to date coverage of topics with an excellent set of features clearly designed to help to encourage independent study in students. Ideal for undergraduate and postgraduate psychology students taking a course in educational psychology" - Dr Dave Putwain, Edge Hill University

"An excellent introduction to the area of Educational psychology for psychology undergraduates. Coverage is broad and clearly structured into research at classroom, school and wider contexts. Topics are set out in an innovative and imaginative way, with quizzes and activities which will develop critical thinking skills and promote independent learning. I would strongly recommend this book" - Dr Susan Atkinson, Leeds Metropolitan University

"This is a well organised and very well considered presentation of a complex discipline. Students of psychology are likely to find it very supportive of their studies, whilst students of other disciplines may find it illuminates areas of study, such as learning, behaviour, special needs and friendship. Illustrations, case studies and photographs bring life to lengthy, complex text" - Christine Hey, Senior Lecturer, University of Derby

"a great introduction to educational psychology and well balanced with insights into the complexity of the issues involved. [...] It is an excellent introduction to the key concepts and complexities of this discipline and, as the pressures of justifiable funding weigh heavily on all future research, I would highly recommend it to all who find their research journey travelling towards cross-discipline territory." - BPS Psychology of Education Section
