Unit of study_

Learning, Knowing and Thinking (EDPE5001)

A core unit of study which examines ways in which current understanding of cognitive processes related to learning, knowing and thinking may contribute to the design of learning experiences in varied settings. Consideration will be given to constructivist and generative approaches to learning and to schema theory approaches to facilitating knowledge development and problem-solving skills. Emphasis will be placed on the teaching of learning strategies, the development of metacognitive skills and the integration of domain knowledge and strategic knowledge. Issues of transfer of learning, patterns of student interaction in learning, creativity and the facilitation of self-regulation in the learner will be examined.
