Psychology of Learning and Teaching - EDUF3029

Year - 2018

This unit of study examines research on information processing and the design of instructional materials and activities which have significant implications for enhancing learning outcomes. Online activities (approximately one hour/week) will complement face-to-face classes. In addition to lectures, students present the results of their collaborative self-directed research in a series of presentations held in the last two weeks of the unit of study. At the completion of the unit students should be able to analyse, synthesise, and draw conclusions from theory and research, derive educational implications and applications for an educational level (e.g. primary, secondary), demonstrate the skills involved in collaborative and self-directed learning, and demonstrate competence in oral and written communication skills.
