The Pedagogy of Learning（学习教育学）
（University of Gothenburg, Sweden）
There is the Psychology of Learning, there is the Sociology of Learning, the Neuroscience of Learning. Pedagogy is, however, about how people can help other people to learn. So studying learning from such a point of view, implies another and distinct field of knowledge, a field which we might call the Pedagogy of Learning. I will present an attempt to develop a theory within that field. It is supposed to be a tool for handling the content of learning in more powerful ways and it has been put to empirical test in hundreds and hundreds of classrooms.
