One of the central needs of a teacher is to understand how their students learn. In this course, you will learn about how people learn generally, the degree to which people differ in how they learn, and the strategies required to teach them effectively. You will study core educational psychology topics—including development, cognition, and motivation—and observe them in action in classrooms. In assessment, you will articulate these issues, and report on observations of teaching in a way that bridges theory, research, and practice.
