The Learning Theory Jungle
Minter, Robert L.
Journal of College Teaching & Learning, v8 n6 p7-15 2011
This article addresses the myriad of pedagogical and andragogical issues facing university educators in the student learning process. It briefly explores the proliferation of learning theories in an attempt to develop awareness among faculty who teach at the university/college levels that not all theories of learning apply to the adult learner. In doing so, it is hoped that university faculty will question what assumptions about the adult learning process are guiding their teaching styles.
