EDUC 500 Syllabus C OURSE S YLLABUS G RADUATE S CHOOL OF E DUCATION EDUC 500 A DVANCED E DUCATIONAL P SYCHOLOGY C OURSE D ESCRIPTION An overview of the contributions of psychology to the teaching-learning process. Topics include learning theory, individual differences, motivation, human development, exceptionalities, teaching methodology, measurement and evaluation. R ATIONALE The purpose of this course is to prepare teachers in areas such as research, up-to-date theories, and classroom-tested applications. Educational psychology equips teachers to think about how students learn at various levels of development, to make decisions before and during instruction, and to consider what constitutes evidence that their students are learning and succeeding. A personal reflection will provide an understanding of the behavior and thinking of one’s self, as well as others, and will become an effective tool for intrapersonal and interpersonal Christian growth through the lifelong learning process. Educational psychology is foundational to the study of any field in education. I. P REREQUISITES None II. R EQUIRED R ESOURCE P URCHASES Slavin, R. E. (2008).
