Summary
"In recent years teaching has taken on a new concern for its importance and effectiveness. Leaders of public opinion and the teaching profession as well as research scholars are refocusing their concerns and renewing inquiry into the phenomena of learning and the problems of teaching. Dr. Ralph Garry has written The Psychology of Learning as an appropriate response to the need for the re-examination of education. The content of the monograph draws upon research in the behavioral sciences, particularly psychology, to state findings and to test concepts. Conceptual systems are described to give insight into learning. The salient feature of the monograph is that research and theory are integrated with practice. The teacher, school administrator, and scholar will find an honest confrontation of facts and ideas with the practical problems of application. A brief study of the chapter headings--e.g., the learner, learning task, teaching procedures--will invite the student of learning to explore further. A balanced treatment regarding the controversial teaching machine is suggested by the elements of the final chapter--"The Teacher, Teaching Machines, and Transfer," and the class as a socio-psychological unit. Thus the monograph comes full circle to highlight again the social and psychological conditions of learning. Establishing these conditions is a primary task of the teacher"--Foreword.
