Focusing on contemporary issues and strategies, including the use of elearning, the book provides a background to research in behaviourist theory and explains its implications for current teaching and learning, providing practical guidance to show teachers and students how they can use these ideas to improve classroom learning. Chapters incorporate:

* History of behaviourist theory and key thinkers

* Pedagogical implications

* Practical strategies in the classroom

* Behaviourist theory and elearning

Case studies and scenarios demonstrating best practice are used throughout the text to exemplify how theory relates to practice, showing how a carefully planned curriculum and reinforced behaviours lead to effective learning.

Appealing to practising teachers and education students alike, this book provides a valuable and practical guide to the use of behaviourist theory in education, and is applicable to all those responsible for providing effective teaching and learning
