On this week's programme my guest is David C. Berliner who is Regents' Professor of Education Emeritus at Arizona State University. Among the topics we discussed were co-authoring Educational Psychology with Nathaniel Gage, how he stumbled into the field of educational psychology, his views on what psychology contributes to the education of a teacher, how he thinks teacher education could be improve, his thoughts on the effective removal of educational psychology from teacher education programmes in the United States, his interest in the psychology of classroom practice, the messiness of classroom practice, his thoughts on motivation and feedback to children, and making research accessible to teachers.

He talks about a concept he developed called “academic learning time” – one of the possibly “one of the most important concepts ever created in educational psychology.” It is a classroom method to predict kids’ outcomes.
