This course focuses on issues in learning and development that have particular relevance to understanding student thinking. Research on student learning and motivation provides the core readings for the course, which is run in a discussion-based, workshop like format. As part of the course, students will be involved in a lab component that will support their understanding of the role of research in informing practice, including the use of qualitative and quantitative methods, their data reduction, and interpretation. This course is required for students pursuing special majors in psychology and educational studies, and for all students pursuing teacher certification.
