Pfeiffer :: The New Update on Adult Learning Theory
A companion work to 1993's popular An Update on Adult Learning Theory, this issue provides the adult learning educator with the latest developments, significant research, and continuing scholarship in andragogy and self-directed learning. Articles also introduce pioneering developments in adult learning research, including new understandings of the brain's relationship to mind and consciousness and the role of emotions, feelings, and the imagination in the learning process. As an assessment of adult learning theory today, this volume is an indispensable resource for adult learning educators committed to delivering a more effective practice in the classroom, in the workplace, or in the community.

Learning Theories of Instructional Design
I found many articles and internet sites that dealt with learning theory and ID, in fact, it was difficult to know when and where to draw the line. Is There One Best Learning Theory for Instructional Design? Behaviorism, as a learning theory, can be traced back to Aristotle, whose essay "Memory" focused on associations being made between events such as lightning and thunder. Developed by Learning Research and Development Center of the University of Pitsburgh.

Schema theory of learning
Schema theory was developed by R. C. Anderson, a respected educational psychologist . This learning theory views organized knowledge as an elaborate network of abstract mental structures which represent one's understanding of the world.

Play as an integral part of learning culture

Learning Theories
One of the key issues to look at when examining any Learning Theory is Transfer of Learning. Over the past 20 years or so, a learning theory called Situated Learning has been developed. A unifying concept emerging from situated learning research is "communities of practice"--the idea that learning is constituted through the sharing of purposeful, patterned activity (Lave Wenger, 1989). Constructs from situated learning research and John Dewey's philosophy support a distinction between technological settings for collaboration and truly collaborative technologies.
