EDP 657   MAJOR THEORIES IN LEARNING IN SECONDARY EDUCATION   (1 hour)
 
This course will provide an overview of some of the major theories of human learning as they relate to formal education and schooling. We will attempt to examine such theories of human learning while paying close attention to the roles that philosophy, history, the humanities, the natural sciences, and psychology have played in their development. Also, throughout the course, we shall attempt to explore current topics in the formal educational experiences of elementary, secondary and postsecondary students in order to link such theories to known educational practice. Finally, in the interest of advancing the current learning theories, we will offer critical evaluations of the presented learning theories and use these in the development of our own ideas, conceptualizations and theoretical developments regarding human learning.
