How We Learn Summary


How We Learn: Learning and Non-Learning in School and Beyond by Knud Illeris (Aarhus University, Denmark.)

How We Learn deals with the fundamental issues of the processes of learning, critically assessing different types of learning and obstacles to learning. It also considers a broad range of other important questions in relation to learning such as:

  • modern research into learning and brain functions
  • self-perception, motivation and competence development
  • teaching, intelligence and learning style
  • learning in relation to gender and life age.

The book provides a comprehensive introduction to both traditional learning theory and the newest international research into learning processes, while at the same time being an innovative contribution to a new and more holistic understanding of learning including discussion on school-based learning, net-based learning, workplace learning and educational politics.

How We Learn examines all the key factors that help to create a holistic understanding of what learning actually is and why and how learning and non-learning take place. It is also however a refreshing and thought-provoking piece of scholarly work as it adds new research material, new understandings and new points of view.
