Teaching and Learning: A Model for Academic and Social Cognition

September 13, 2011

By Marjorie S. Schiering, Drew Bogner, and Jorun Buli-Holmberg

"Learners are multi-faceted, unique people. Discovering the whole individual is incumbent upon realizing the teaching/learning environments, common social and societal realities, and belief and value systems respective of academic and socio-societal factors that establish who one is as a learner and teacher. In Teaching and Learning, the authors offer practical strategies for interactive instruction to facilitate optimum learning. This book addresses a theoretical framework that includes the relationship between thoughts and feelings, the effect of past experiences on present and future behaviours, universal connectivity, and a strong understanding of which one is as a teacher and learner."

Name the Newsletter Contest
As you may recall, we asked our ILSN Community Members to participate in a contest and help us name our newsletter. The contest was tremendously successful, which made the choice difficult. Thus, our solution was to combine two names. Our winners are Myriam Jensen (i-learn) and Ina Von Barm (Well Dunn). We would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their name submissions and to thank everyone for your incredibly creative names. We appreciate your taking time from your busy schedules to enter the contest.
