In this course, students examine the variables related to teaching and learning to understand how educational psychologists contribute to teacher effectiveness, student motivation, and overall academic achievement. They assess teaching methods, learning environments, curriculum development, educational achievement, and characteristics of teachers and learners. They also explore educational assessment, environmental issues, and educational research techniques. Students complete an article summary through which they explain the rationale, methods, findings, and implications of a current research issue. Sharing their topical summaries with the class, students gain multiple perspectives and make connections within the field of educational psychology.
