Comprehensive yet easy to follow, Learning and Development is designed to help faculty, student affairs professionals, and other educators understand how students learn and what they can do to foster student achievement. Sharon Silverman and Martha Casazza reveal how diverse developmental needs such as lack of self–esteem or cultural alienation can be at the root of a student′s learning difficulties. They draw from the latest theory and research to explore the critical connection between learning and development in six key areas: self and identity, motivation, interaction with the environment, ways of knowing, learning styles and preferences, and self–regulation and goal setting. The authors also present six case studies to show how educators can assess and resolve learning problems while enriching and advancing their own teaching expertise. Written in clear, nontechnical language, Learning and Development provides useful, systematic approaches for making connections between teaching and learning.
