CI 518 Science of Learning

The science of learning involves examining how data is learned, remembered, processed, interpreted and applied. The course will also show connections between the functions of the brain and effective learning/teaching strategies. The course begins with a study of the brain itself, including its anatomy, physiology and health, and how its structure and working relate to learning. Awareness and the biology of conscious thought will be explored through research related to brain development, information processing, memory and retention, transferring learning, and critical thinking. Participants will review this research, and examine how it applies to effective learning and teaching in their subject areas. A related aim of the course is for trainee-teachers to identify teaching methologies, strategies and activities that best assist learning. Credit units: 3 ECTS Credit units: 7.
