ASEC 63000 - Theories Of Learning And Development
Credit Hours: 3.00. The goal of this course is to introduce students to a variety of theoretical perspectives of learning and development and how they may be used in both formal, informal and non-formal educational settings. This goal will be achieved through students' analysis of key concepts, assumptions, propositions and principles of four theoretical areas: (1) Foundational Learning Theory, (2) Student Development Theory, (3) Career & Workforce Development Theory and (4) Youth Development & Experiential Learning Theory. This course will also build on students' prior exposure to behaviorist, cognitive, and constructivist approaches of learning and development. In sum, many of the theories discussed in this course will provide students with a greater understanding of human thought and behavior that will help them become more effective educators, researchers and practitioners. Permission of instructor required.
