Biological Psychology 13th Asia Edition
The most widely used text in its course area, James W. Kalat’s BIOLOGICAL PSYCHOLOGY has appealed to thousands of students before you. Why? Kalat’s main goal is to make Biological Psychology understandable to Psychology students, not just to Biology majors and pre meds–and he delivers. Another goal is to convey the excitement of the search for biological explanations of behavior. Kalat believes that Biological Psychology is “the most interesting topic in the world,” and this text convinces many students–and maybe you, too–with clear writing, amusing anecdotes and intriguing examples. MindTap, an interactive online learning resource that integrates the text with videos, animations and a virtual bio-lab component, makes learning even easier and more enjoyable.
One of the noteworthy global achievements of the past two decades has been the remarkable increase in thenumber of children attending school and the number of children completing the primary cycle. As more children start school, the focus has shifted toward the quality of their education—on true learning, not just schooling. The critical role played by teachers to enhance the quality of education is especially salient in a populous, geographically dispersed, and culturally diverse country such as Indonesia. With close to three million teachers, Indonesia has one of the largest and most diverse cadres of educators in the world. The comprehensive Teacher and Lecturer Law, approved by the Indonesian government in 2005, radically reformed the management and development of those teachers. Teacher Reform in Indonesia: The Role of Politics and Evidence in Policy Making features a comprehensive analysis of the teaching profession and the impact of recent reforms, which included the doubling of a teacher’s basic pay once he/she satisfies the conditions necessary for certification—a factor that has improved the status ofteachers and attracted better candidates to teacher training institutions. This book provides a description of the political and economic context in which the reform was developed and implemented as wellas an analysis of how the reform affected teacher quality and student outcomes. The book’s framework promotes an approach to reforms based on improving the nature of teacher recruitment; preservice education; induction, mentoring, and probation; formal certification; continuing professional development; teacher performance appraisal; and ongoing career development. The recent history of teacher reform in Indonesia can inform other countries seeking to improve their educational systems and, ultimately, the success of their teachers and students. This book should therefore be of particular interest to Ministries of Education that contemplate similar reforms and development agencies and practitioners that seek to support country efforts to strengthen the teaching profession.

Connecting the study of cognition to everyday life in an unprecedented way, E. Bruce Goldstein’s “Cognitive Psychology, International Edition” gives equal treatment to both the landmark studies and the cutting-edge research that define this fascinating field. The text employs a wealth of concrete examples and illustrations that help students understand the theories of cognition – driving home both the scientific importance of the theories and their relevance to students’ daily lives. Goldstein’s accessible narrative style blends with an art program that makes difficult concepts understandable. Students gain a true understanding of the ‘behind the scenes’ activity that happens in the mind when humans do such seemingly simple activities as perceive, remember, or think. Goldstein’s also focuses on the behavioral and physiological approaches to cognition by including physiological materials in every chapter. As is typical of his work, this is a major revision that reflects the most current aspects of the field. To help reinforce concepts, the text is packaged with “CogLab 2.0 : The Online Cognitive Psychology Laboratory”, which gives both students and instructors the chance to participate as subjects in research experiments.
