Learn how educational psychology can help teachers and trainers improve their teaching methods and fulfill their instructional roles more effectively.
The Diploma in Educational Psychology introduces you to key development theories related to the learning process and provides a framework for teachers and trainers to plan, create and deliver effective lessons, and to assess each student's learning.
The course begins by differentiating between teaching and learning, and covers two major learning theories: behaviourism and constructivism. Behaviourism reviews operant conditioning and its implications for teaching in detail, whereas Constructivism compares and contrasts two subtypes of constructivism, namely, psychological constructivism and social constructivism.
Next, the course describes the most frequent disabilities encountered in the classroom: learning disabilities, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), intellectual disabilities, behavioral disorders, and physical disabilities and sensory impairments. The course then explains why working with students with these special educational needs requires specific skills and strategies to create and deliver effective programs.
Finally, the course reviews student development and diversity and explains in more detail two core elements of student diversity: gender and culture.
This education course will be of great interest to professionals in the education sector who would like a greater knowledge and understanding of the theories in educational psychology concerned with how students learn and develop.
