Theoretical Foundations of Learning Environmentsprovides students, faculty, and instructional designers with a clear, concise introduction to the major pedagogical and psychological theories and their implications for the design of new learning environments for schools, universities, or corporations. Jonassen and Land have assembled a group of leading experts to describe the most important contemporary theories that form the foundation of the conception and design of open-ended learning environments and new applications of educational technologies. This book is well suited as a textbook for courses in instructional design and theory, educational psychology, learning, theory, curriculum theory and design, and related areas. The recent rise of constructivism and its associated theories represented a paradigm shift for educators and instructional designers to a view of learning as necessarily more social, conversational, and constructive than traditional transmissive views of learning. This bestselling text was the first to provide a manageable overview of the altered field, and the second edition has been fully updated to include expert introductions to metacognition, model-based reasoning, and other key contemporary theories that all students, professionals, and researchers concerned with instructional design will need to comprehend.
