IDT 605 - The Science of eLearning (3)

This course is an introduction to the principles of cognitive psychology and its position in education. Cognitive and science research offer a useful foundation for how students learn, connect the research to practical implications for teaching, and debunk common misconceptions about how the brain functions and people learn. By the end of the course, students will distinguish the cognitive processes, defend the importance of beliefs and motivations in the process of cognition, and, finally, construct the ways cognitive psychology informs teaching and learning in specific content areas.
