PSYC 327 Cognition and Education

Last offered Spring 2014

This course will examine the cognitive processes underlying learning in educational settings. Students will come away with a richer understanding of how the mind encodes, stores, and retrieves knowledge, and how learners monitor and manage their own learning. We will examine common educational practices and how they depart from what research recommends. Although the class is primarily about cognition, we will delve into related topics such as motivation, determination, and inequality. Most of the readings will be scientific research articles on cognition and/or education.
