"Since the publication of the original How Learning Works, I have returned again and again to its thorough and readable summaries of the most important research on student learning. This second edition has become an even more essential resource for faculty, as the authors have infused the book's recommendations with greater awareness of the social, emotional, and cultural factors that impact student identity and development."
- James Lang, Author of Small Teaching
"How Learning Works is a poignant and provocative book that engages meaningfully and intentionally with the intellectual and affective dimensions of teaching and learning that shape our complex and diverse higher education classrooms. Presenting a well-researched, relevant and socially conscious range of cognitive and social principles and practices, the authors explore what it means to engage intentionally with students as whole beings, in a socially just, inclusive and pedagogically responsible way."
- Kasturi Behari-Leak, Dean of the Centre for Higher Education Development, University of Cape Town

"How Learning Works is the essential book on teaching and learning in higher education. The new edition is even better than the original. Drawing deeply on recent research to outline eight principles of How Learning Works, the authors provide practical guidance to put those principles into action. This book is smart, useful, and inspiring!"
- Peter Felten, Executive Director, Center for Engaged Learning, Elon University
"This book provides tremendous benefits to anyone who wants to engage students and facilitate learning in a higher education context. The authors have pruned the extensive research about how learning works into eight principles and their associated implications. Each chapter contains relatable challenges and offers evidence-based approaches for addressing them."
