Item description for Research on Sociocultural Influences on Motivation and Learning (Research on Sociocultural Influences on Motivation and Learning Series, Volume 1) by Dennis M. McInerney & Shawn Van Etten...
The aim of this book series is to provide a much needed outlet for the wealth of cross-cultural research that has not impacted: (1) mainstream educational and psychological texts (e.g., learning, motivation, development, social, and cognitive texts); and (2) mainstream undergraduate and graduate courses in education and psychology. A review of standard texts reveals very little citation of this cross-cultural literature; one has to access journals such as the Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology or the Journal of Intercultural Studies or specialized texts to obtain this information. This series attempts to bridge this information gap by making sociocultural research accessible to mainstream consumers by exploring the sociocultural influences on learning and motivation across a broad range of settings and content areas. For this reason, the series, while erudite, will present issues, research findings, implications, and applications in a format that will be attractive to seasoned and beginning academics, students, and those who have a specialized interest in cross-cultural research. Societies such as the USA, Australia, United Kingdom, and Europe are becoming increasingly diverse in cultural and social demographics. For this reason, the series will play a significant role in making sociocultural influences a mainstream concern in research and application.
