Theoretical Foundations of Learning Environments cover

Land, S. and Jonassen, D. (eds.) (2012) Theoretical Foundations of Learning Environments, 2nd ed., New York, Routledge.

This book  is a collection of essays that explore different pedagogical theories and how they affect, and are implemented in, the learning environments in schools and workplaces.
