This book is about Educational Psychology put into practice.
Teaching is an art that requires practitioners to be well grounded
in the psychology behind any learning and teaching processes.
Learning is a two way process that requires the teacher to
understand the learner and the learner to understand the teacher.
Effective teaching therefore demands a deep appreciation of the
undergirding psychology of the actors involved, the teacher and the
learner. Chapter One of this book looks at the relevance of
Educational Psychology to teaching and learning. Chapter Two
introduces the reader to theories of learning. More precisely, the
Chapter looks at behaviourist, cognitive and cognitive-social as
the basic and key theories of learning. Chapter Three looks at
motivation with particular focus on the factors influencing
motivation, types of motivation and theories of motivation. Chapter
Four looks at memory, its organisational process, loss of memory
and how memory could be enhanced. Chapter Five addresses the
concept of intelligence, intelligence testing, usefulness of IQ
tests and limitations of such tests. Chapter Six is devoted to
Special Needs Education.
