EDUC 1003 - Educational Psychology♦


(5 cr.) How might social class, ethnicity, and gender impact children’s learning? Education professionals in this course have the opportunity to answer such questions through the exploration of psychological concepts and theories as they relate to the field of early care and education. Education professionals examine behavioral, cognitive, social, and constructivist views of learning. They engage in conceptual and applied assignments that emphasize research-based principles as well as implications of these principles on child development, learning, teaching, and assessment. Moreover, they share perspectives and delve deeper into content through weekly discussions on a variety of topics, such as helping children develop and learn, defining intelligence, fostering resilience, analyzing learning experiences, and using motivation theories and principles.
