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 specialities 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 54 chapters are sub-divided in seven parts:

    • Learning and the person: senses, cognitions, emotions, personality traits and learning styles
    • Learning across the lifespan
    • Life-wide learning
    • Learning across the disciplines: covering everything from anthropology to neuroscience
    • Meaning systems’ interpretation
    • Learning and disability
    • 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.
