Theories of Learning in Educational Psychology

Here you will find lots of information about theories of learning that have been developed over the past 150 years. Teachers and students of educational psychology, curriculum development, instructional methodology and related areas will find useful information. Brief biological sketches of the theorists are provided, when such information is available.

Theories about human learning can be grouped into four broad “perspectives”. These are:

  1. Behaviorism – focus on observable behavior
  2. Cognitive – learning as purely a mental/ neurological process
  3. Humanistic – emotions and affect play a role in learning
  4. Social – humans learn best in group activities
