Human Development, Teaching and Learning Process

What is it to be a teacher and how does human development work?

You may have definite questions and ideas about the ways human beings develop, grow and how this relates to teaching and learning. You may have come upon these ideas from your own experiences or by watching the experiences of your peers over the years. 

In this course, we look at training you as prospective science teachers and educators working with adolescent learners to develop a balanced understanding of educational psychology. We will combine the theory and implications of human development, learning and instruction. You will study classical and contemporary theories related to development and learning, and examine you own learning. We will analyse the application of these reflections to educational settings. 

We cover concepts like child and adolescent development, learning and instruction, and other modern developments in the field of psychology in educational settings.
