Introduction to Learning Sciences: What Makes Learning Happen?

Course Description:

Learning is a complex process. Learning sciences can help us understand not just how we learn, but what we can do to influence learning and, perhaps more importantly, why some instructional strategies work better than others.

Developed as part of Course of Mind, ISTE's learning sciences initiative, this course will explore the complex human learner and how the different pieces of ourselves - including emotional, cognitive, and even physical - interact with resources and our environment to make learning happen.

This is a 15-hour, self-paced course with ongoing instructor support.

Course Dates:
