Over the past several decades, there has been a continually growing body of scholarship focusing on conditions that promote students’ learning, retention, and transfer of academic knowledge. The term ‘science of learning’ is often used to describe this field of specialization. The present work is organized into five sections containing chapters focused on the history, principles, applications, and practice of the 'science of learning.'
