    I'm a HUGE fan of Barbara Oakley! I love this book. It gets into the nuts and bolts of how the brain works while it is learning. It's almost like programming reference manual for teaching. Not all the details are here, of course, but it is quite a learning adventure for someone who is not in the business of pedagogy. A must-read for teachers! It was a great read for me, I learned quite a bit. I'm a HUGE fan of Barbara Oakley! I love this book. It gets into the nuts and bolts of how the brain works while it is learning.

    An excellent resource for critically examining one's teaching practice. I found the parts on learning habits and procedural vs. declarative learning pathways to be insightful and useful.

    A book that is able to provide multiple layers of insight and understanding of how learning takes place (spans across multiple layers of concepts from neuroscience, cognitive science, behavior).
