Teaching and Learning: Designing Opportunities for People to Think, Create, and Innovate
EDST 288
Spring 2023 not offered

What impacts what we learn and how we learn it? Understanding sociological, psychological and cultural influences--as well as modern brain science--will dramatically affect how we design, plan for, and teach others about specific content and concepts. Written curriculum is the roadmap to learning and reflects the beliefs and values of the organization implementing it. Instruction is how that learning is delivered to the students. Curriculum and instruction--teaching and learning--are the cornerstones of what we learn and how we learn it. Many variables (e.g., language, culture, poverty, race, gender, etc.) impact an individual's ability to access and think deeply about the curriculum. This course will engage in inquiry about how people learn and what impacts their learning, as well as how we can effectively plan for and design learning that everyone can access, regardless of the variables that could potentially impact them.
