Learning, Knowledge, and Human Development

This course sets out to provide an understanding of theories of learning and development and how these theories relate to educational technology. It has two components. The first is theoretical, in which we attempt to develop an overall frame of reference, locating approaches to the psychology of learning in terms of large paradigm shifts, from ‘behaviorism’ to ‘brain developmentalism’ to ‘social cognitivism’. The second component is practical, in which we will use these theoretical concepts to ‘parse’ a technology-mediated learning environment for its underlying presuppositions. -------------------------------- Recommended Background -------------------------------- This course is designed for people interested in the future of education and the "learning society," including people who may wish to join education as a profession, practicing teachers interested in exploring future directions for a vocation that is currently undergoing transformation, and community and workplace leaders who regard their mission to be in part "educative." -------------------------------- Related Resources -------------------------------- Online resources are available here: https://newlearningonline.com -------------------------------- Join our Online Communities! -------------------------------- CGScholar (Create an account and join the New Learning community) https://cgscholar.com/community/community_profiles/new-learning/community_updates Facebook https://www.facebook.com/newlearningonline Twitter https://twitter.com/neolearning -------------------------------- Take this Course for Credit at the University of Illinois -------------------------------- This course has the same content and anticipates the same level of contribution by students in the Assessment for Learning course offered to graduate certificate, masters, and doctoral level students in the Learning Design and Leadership Program in the College of Education at the University of Illinois. Of course, in the nature of MOOCs many people will just want to view the videos and casually join some of the discussions. Some people say that these limited kinds of participation offer evidence that MOOCs suffer from low retention rates. Far from it – we say that any level of engagement is good engagement. On the other hand, if you would like to take this course for credit at the University of Illinois, you will find more information about our program here: https://ldlprogram.web.illinois.edu/overview/ And you can apply here: https://education.illinois.edu/epol/programs-degrees/ldl -------------------------------- The Learning Design and Leadership Series of MOOCs -------------------------------- This course is one of a series of eight MOOCs created by Bill Cope and Mary Kalantzis for the Learning Design and Leadership program at the University of Illinois.

What people are saying

furthermore sometimes they seem

Furthermore sometimes they seem just to read down the slides... For me there are better learning alternatives as this course was not very appealing.

better learning alternatives as

example about student development

Some of the information was quite interesting, and some of the presenters did a very good job presenting information and sharing the results of researches, but some lectures (for example about student development) were hard to follow, even if the information was of value, it wasn't conveyed very well.

expectations were high due

I am kind of frustrated with this course, since my expectations were high due to the proposition and the quality of the institution.

keep redefining my deadlines

I keep redefining my deadlines so I can accomplish the peer reviewed tasks, and the weeks pass and no one reads it.

clear coherent overview

Another point it that course seems to be inconsistent, the choice of topics isn't justified, even though the information is interesting, you don't get a clear coherent overview of the subject.

only current learner

The course content is good, but the fact that I am the only current learner (it seems I am alone) make the motivation trully hard.

peer reviewed tasks

speaker / professors

I found it rather hard to follow the speaker / professors in the course.

another point
