EDUC 000/2021 - Fundamentals of Teaching and Learning (3 cr.)



Description
The overall goal of this course is to help students gain an understanding of the fundamental concepts of how students learn and how teachers teach. The former is achieved through a study of major classical and contemporary learning theories, while the latter is achieved through a study of knowledge of the fundamental teaching theories and what it takes to be an effective teacher. The connection between learning theories and teaching strategies will be made to link learning and teaching together. Students will be introduced to the main theories derived from neuro-scientific research. This focus will help students understand the roles of classroom teachers and how this should be based on explicit knowledge of learning theories. In addition, the basics of classroom assessment and lesson planning will be covered.
