EDU 5331 - Understanding the Learner

Credits: 3

This survey course targets the behavior and development of humans from birth through adolescence, emphasizing developmentally appropriate practice in early childhood and elementary education. Students study the characteristics of major developmental stages, what brain research reveals about teaching and learning, and the implications of culturally diverse and at-risk student populations. Students will consider how all of these characteristics, needs, and implications should affect choices in instructional design and the learning environment, all based upon a biblical worldview. (3)
