About this site

In knowledge society theories of learning and teaching are the very foundations of all activities. The wealth of scientific work and results in this field during 20th century is far from being used, even far from being known to all who practice teaching.

Our ultimate goal is bettering learning and teaching in practice.

Therefore, we continuously seek to find a comprehensive yet intuitive, logical and easy to use overview of learning (and teaching) theories. This overview is to serve our own research and educational practice as well as to be an easy to use tool for other practitioners. In this process we decided to share our findings with others. These pages are the result. Below you can find other similar resources we found to be useful.

If you would like to contribute to these pages or collaborate with us in a broader sense, we would like to hear from you.

Please do not hesitate to send us your comments, suggestions or critique.


If you are new to the field, we suggest that you go to “Learning paradigms and theories” where you will find overview that can be easily comprehended and followed.

If you are looking for something specific, you might want to use the search box (top right corner of this page) or the site map (bottom right corner of this page).

If you are wondering how can all this be of use in educational practice, we compiled our list of conclusions under “IMPLICATIONS”.

A note

The text in these pages is written by us. However, it is very hard to avoid wordings, constructs or even whole sentences which are consistently repeated in literature, or are perfectly phrased by some other author. Whereever practical, we took care to include references to other authors. If we failed to do so in a place or two, it was not by intention to appropriate someones intellectual property, and please do draw our attention to this fact.

We systematically check the content of these pages with anti-plagiarism tools like: Plagium
