The Educational Psychology Diploma Course explains the ways in which students learn and develop, whilst providing discussions and practical examples of how this information can be incorporated into teaching frameworks and used to plan, create and deliver effective lessons.
Students will have an improved understanding of human behaviour and mental processes within an educational context.
The course covers the following aspects of educational psychology: history, main learning theories, student development theories, motivation, and some classroom management skills.
We look at the history of the subject, including where thinking is now, topics and specialisms within this area, and the importance of Educational Psychology. The process of learning can be physical, social, or emotional, as well as cognitive, the results of which are a permanent change in behaviour, skills, knowledge, or attitude. We will explain various theories and the show these well-practiced processes.
Students will learn about childhood growth and developmental experiences in relation to the teaching process. Providing an overview of the stages of development and we then look at each stage individually, before moving on to some specific areas of development.
Wee look at the differences in motivation and how to tune into student’s choices, desires, and attitudes, to aid their motivation. The module discusses 7 major theories about motives and their sources, these are:
Motives as behaviour change
Motives as goals
Motives as interests
Motives as attributions about success
Motives as beliefs about self-efficacy
Motives as self-determination
We illustrate how students can be different, and how these differences are reflected in the way they learn. We cover topics such as: the way in which individuals prefer to learn, different intelligence types, gifted students, cultural expectations, and gender differences.
Looking at special educational needs. We include how to recognise the signs of certain conditions and how to adapt learning to fit those with additional needs, be they physical, intellectual, sensory, learning or behavioural, so that they may still reach their full potential.
The course discusses the 3 somewhat complex forms of thinking that are commonly pursued in classroom learning: critical thinking, creative thinking, and problem-solving. The course then goes on to explain how these are stimulated, using 2 types of instruction: Teacher-Directed and Student Centred.
