EDUC 55 Applying Cognitive Psychology to Education

Explore the cognitive processes that underlie learning by examining: how the mind encodes, stores, and retrieves knowledge; how learners monitor and regulate their learning; and how expertise is acquired. Delve into the scientific literature to evaluate the effectiveness of study/instructional strategies, and compare the research findings against our own intuitions (how we learn best may not correspond to how we think we learn best). Consider the implications of cognitive science research for enhancing educational practice. Open to all classes.



Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
