Course Description

This course emphasizes the design and creation of learning environments for effective teaching and learning utilizing current brain, learning, and teaching research. Effective learning has to engage learners, which requires purposeful planning by the teacher. Current research on thinking and learning explains the brain’s physiological need for meaning making, creating patterns, and connections to allow information to be understood and ultimately stored in long term memory.
