This product reflects exciting developments in the field and includes many new and updated references to the work of Australasian and international researchers.

This edition is increasingly relevant to the Australasian context as well as addressing universal issues facing teachers wherever they are in the world. There is a strong nexus between theory and practice with emphasis on educational implications and applications of research on human development, cognitive science, learning, motivation, teaching, and assessment, showing how information and ideas drawn from educational psychology research can be applied to solve everyday problems of teaching.

Numerous examples, case studies, guidelines, and practical tips from experienced teachers are used to explore connections between knowledge, understanding, and practice. The text is clear, relevant and interesting, and is as free of technical language and jargon as possible.
