Pedagogy and Students with ASD (EDPD5013)
UNIT OF STUDY
This unit examines the theoretical models underlying different strategies of teaching, familiarises students with basic constructs in learning theory, and reviews research relating to the use of particular teaching strategies in the education of students with special needs. Much of the unit comprises a consideration of strategies derived from behaviourist and cognitivist approaches to learning, including task analysis, contingency management, data-based instruction, process learning, attribution training, cognitive and metacognitive training, and the use of computers in special education. A developmental perspective will be adopted, and both theoretical and practical aspects of each strategy addressed.
