Learning theories are the frameworks of education that describe how knowledge is processed, absorbed and retained. This is a complicated process that is influenced by cognitive, emotional and environmental factors. Learning theories are understood from the views of behaviorism and conditioning, cognitivism, constructivism and transformative learning theory. Behavior analysis is concerned with the prediction and control of behavior. Learning is achieved through conditioning and social learning. The learning theories of classical conditioning, social learning theory and operant conditioning are the fundamental pillars of applied behavior analysis. Cognitive theories consider learning as an internal mental process and strive to understand how human memory functions to promote learning. This book attempts to understand the different learning theories and explains their need and contribution in modern education. The topics included in this book on learning theories are of utmost significance and bound to provide incredible insights to readers. For someone with an interest and eye for detail, this book covers the most significant topics in the field of educational psychology.

Sports Coaching: The Basics is an engaging and provocative introduction to sports coaching which combines coaches’ views and experiences of their work with discussions and topical issues that feature in this fast-growing field.

Consequently, the book prompts questions such as: What is coaching? What does it mean to be a coach? How do coaches influence athletes/players? How do coaches learn? What is it like to be a coach? In considering these questions, readers are encouraged to reflect upon their experiences of coaching and to start conversations with others about coaches’ work. Therefore, the book is of use for coaches, those interested in studying sports coaching, and coach educators or facilitators of coach learning initiatives.

One of the most important transformations in the world today is the adaptation to education and teaching methods that must be made to enhance the learning experience for Millennial and Generation Z students. The system in which the student is passive and the teacher is active is no longer the most effective form of education. Additionally, with the increased availability to information, knowledge transfer is no longer done solely by the teacher. Educators need to become moderators in order to promote effective teaching practices. Paradigm Shifts in 21st Century Teaching and Learning is an essential scholarly publication that examines new approaches to learning and their application in the teaching-learning process. Featuring a wide range of topics such as game-based learning, curriculum design, and sustainability, this book is ideal for teachers, curriculum developers, instructional designers, researchers, education professionals, administrators, academicians, educational policymakers, and students.

A volume on Theory and Practice of Adult and Higher Education or Foundations of Adult and Higher Education will appeal to both our graduate students and faculty as so many of them have been taking courses in both program areas and have been concerned with their defined areas of expertise. Although theories and practices in Adult Education, and in Higher Education are being used interchangeably, there is a lack of scholarly work that connects existing theories and practices across the two fields. The proposed ground?breaking volume will cover topics/theories/practices in both fields of Adult Education and of Higher Education, and in doing so will bring to the fore the connections that make these two fields truly inseparable. The proposed volume will therefore generate new knowledge to share among faculty, graduate students and other researchers who practice not only in Adult Education, but also in Higher Education.
