EDUC 581 Research-Based Teaching, Learning and Assessment

(Summer and both semesters/3 credits) 

This course extends students’ knowledge, understanding and application of theories of child development and the teaching-learning-assessment process, and offers the student the opportunity to carefully consider and apply the findings of educational, psychological and brain-based research and theory. A semester-long case study of one subject of the student’s choice helps the student to thoughtfully apply the results of the research to his/her teaching practice, collect data to document change in the subject’s academic or social behavior and skillfully analyze and reflect on the outcomes of the case study.(Students enrolled in the M.S. Degree Programs in Educational Leadership and Curriculum and Instruction are encouraged to complete this course within the first 12 credits)
