Spring 2010 (see specific dates below)  ~  There's still time to register!  
 
 
 
Course Overview 


Various schools of thought have provided perspectives on how individuals learn and why they behave as they do.  At certain times, we have been more influenced by one perspective than others, depending on what was currently the focus of research.  It is unfortunate that as new schools of thought develop, earlier ones are often discarded entirely.  For our practice to be most effective, it is imperative to be familiar with a broad range of theories and synthesize ideas from a variety of perspectives to provide an integrated approach to help students achieve.  
 
Theories can help explain the complexities of student behavior and show that it is not just a matter of chance of random effect.  Understanding theory and recognizing the many possible factors that help explain individual differences in learning are only part of the story.  Translating understanding into meaningful and effective action is the challenge.  Effective instruction and successful learning are not achieved by chance.  We offer a framework called TRPP (theory, research, principles, and practice) as a guide for designing learning situations to maximize student potential.
 
In this course, you will be introduced to the TRPP (Theory, Research, Principles, Practice) framework and become aware of current research and new ways of viewing theories about learning.  In addition, you will examine long-standing practices that may need to be revisited.  We will focus on these four areas and use the TRPP framework to guide our learning:  Self- and Identity, Motivation, Ways of Knowing, and Self-Regulation.
 
In a series of six modules you will interact with others in a collaborative environment and apply theory and research to the student learning situations you face.   The use of case studies will be central throughout the course. The outline for the course is as follows:


Introduction and Overview
Why are theory and research important in our practice?  What is the TRPP  framework?

Motivation
What theories and research findings about motivation are useful to help explain student behavior and design learning environments?

Ways of Knowing
What theories and research findings about ways of knowing are useful to help explain student behavior and design learning environments?

Self and Identity
What theories and research findings about self and identity are useful to help explain student behavior and design learning environments?

Self-Regulation
What theories and research findings about self-regulation are useful to help explain student behavior and design learning environments?

Critical Reflection
Using a process of critical reflection, we will connect the learning in this course and develop a plan for application in your practice.
