Over 50 Learning Theories Explained for Teachers

Theory informs practice and without a solid theoretical base we risk having an impaired praxis. This is clearly noticeable in the education sector where the teaching pedagogy is directly shaped by the theoretical traditions underpinning one’s teaching philosophy. For instance, inline with the ethos of their constructivist theory, progressivist educators tend to favour a dialogic, autonomous and student-centerer type of teaching where learners are encouraged to take responsibility of their learning. So it stands to reason that being cognizant of the multiple learning theories that make up the different teaching pedagogies can help enhance and diversify our teaching strategies in ways that will benefit your students.l
