EDUC 565 - Advanced Application Learning Science 3 hours


This course examines learning theory within the context of today’s pre K-12 classrooms and the increasing demand for differentiated instruction. The emerging interdisciplinary field of learning sciences is explored against the backdrop of effective teaching and student achievement, and the challenges of preparing all students for a future that does not yet exist. Emphasis will be placed on the application of learning theory and science to instructional practices, with a particular focus on differentiated practice. Current pedagogical trends in education will be analyzed for their scientific merits. The professional learning of staff is also considered, as well as the application of theory and science to organizational learning and goal achievement. Prerequisite: M.Ed. status.
