The Developing Learner
— EDUC 503 (3)
Teacher Candidates will come to understand how a child's development influences their ability to learn. A thorough understanding of the development of the learner's cognitive, social, emotional, physical, and spiritual characteristics from infancy to adolescence is necessary - an understanding that is rooted in our foundational thinking of human nature. Comprehension of ‘normal' development will help teachers detect, address, and foster individual growth. An emphasis will be placed on the classroom implications of development studies in such areas as student diversity, classroom environment, learning styles, motivation, memory, social interaction, assessment, and evaluation of learning. Case studies will constitute part of the methodological approach in the delivery of this course.
