EDU 6505 - Engaged Learning

Credits, 3 sem hrs
Engaged Learning will provide an emphasis on creating learning opportunities that address the brain’s need for meaning, patterns, and connections. While addressing appropriate levels of learning, age appropriate teaching strategies, and the science of learning, teachers will focus on creating a classroom climate conducive to learning for all students. Topics will also include concepts of teaching, learner characteristics, learning environment designs, and effective teaching. Research in cognition, learning, and teaching will form the foundation for the course.
