PSYC 5131 - Theories of Learning♦


(5 cr.) An in-depth study of modern learning theory, its historical context, theoretical ideas, research, and applications in various learning environments are provided to students in this course. The theoretical ideas of the major paradigms of learning, such as behaviorism, gestalt, cognitivism, information processing, constructivism, and humanism, will be covered. Students in the course will also review current theories of cognitive processes such as language, memory, and intelligence and examine how differences in cognitive levels throughout the lifespan mediate learning of educational subject matters.
