EDUC 8113 - The Learner Across the Lifespan


(4 cr.) Educational scholars recognize the important role of human development in the educational process. In this course, education professionals gain an understanding of the theories and frameworks relevant to the development and experiences of individuals from birth through old age. They engage in coursework that emphasizes application of this knowledge to educational settings, and they discuss a range of topics, such as personal teaching experiences, theory-based approaches to a contemporary problem, influences of moral development, and intergenerational relationships, among others.  Education professionals also explore different strands of development across the lifespan as well as how they relate to the individual as a learner. (Prerequisite(s): EDUC 8111.)
