Conduction: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electrical_conduction

Induction: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electromagnetic_induction

Conduction is the movement of charges (usually electrons) due to an electric field, as in a current flowing through a resistor connected to a battery. Induction is the movement of charges (usually electrons) caused by a changing magnetic field through a loop of conductor, like in the generator connected to a power-producing windmill.
