Learning and Individual Differences (EDPE6011)


This unit examiners major areas of individual differences among learners and ways in which educational provision may be adapted to accommodate these differences in helping each student to achieve major learning outcomes. Consideration will be given to areas of cognitive and personality differences, learning styles, and gender differences. Particular attention will be given to implications of research which (a) explores aptitude-treatment interactions, (b) elucidates the mediating processes involved in adaptive provisions and (c) evaluates outcomes of major forms of provision for individual differences.
