The two threads here, "Good (cheap) PIC chip choice for project?" and 
"Follow-up question re: microcontroller families" have a lot of good 
information.  A more organized approach is available at the 
Digi-Key/Design News Continuing Education Center which has several free 
courses on microcontroller basics and selecting a microcontroller.  You 
download a Powerpoint presentation and follow along to an audio stream.

For example:
"Microcontrollers, Basics"; "Microcontrollers, Advanced"; and "Hands-On 
Analysis of Five MCU Development Kits" at

"ARM Cortex-M0" at 

"How to Choose a Microcontroller Architecture" at
