EPSY 408 G4 - Learning & Hum Dev w/ EdTech
Sets out to provide an understanding of theories of learning and development and how these theories relate to educational technology. It has two components. The first is theoretical, in which we attempt to develop an overall frame of reference, locating approaches to the psychology of learning in terms of large paradigm shifts, from 'behaviorism' to 'brain developmentalism' to 'social cognitivism'. The second component is practical, in which we will use these theoretical concepts to 'parse' a technology-mediated learning environment for its underlying presuppositions. Course Information: 3 undergraduate hours. 4 graduate hours.
EdM students will meet from 5:30-6:30pm and EdD students will meet from 6:30-7:30pm. Sessions will be recorded, so attendance at these times is not required.
