DESCRIPTION

This unit introduces students to educational psychology and the theories of learning, relating them to contemporary teaching practices. As a result of studying this unit, students will understand why contemporary teaching practice is focused on learning rather than just educational delivery or training, and be able to incorporate this knowledge into their teaching and learning strategies. Various approaches to learning and teaching will be studied, and their implications for curriculum development will be examined. This unit will inform and improve students‟ knowledge of foundational and contemporary theories and practices in teaching and learning.
