There can be no doubt about significant interest in learning strategies when a Google search for the literal string “learning strategies” returns approximately 7,830,000 results (2019 July 11, 13:45). Given that result, an astonishing finding is the relatively small volume of research about such a popular topic. Searching PsychINFO for academic journal articles with titles containing “learning” and either “strategies” or “strategy” yielded a considerably smaller set of just 1896 items (2019 July 11, 13:44). I speculate there may be much conjecture, hearsay, and even some misinformation about learning strategies populating the Internet. Educational practitioners and scholars can be thankful for chapters in this section of the Handbook that plumb research work on learning strategies.
