This course examines concepts and theories from educational, social, and developmental psychology as they pertain to teaching and learning. The course provides opportunities for pre-service teachers embarking on a teaching career in primary and secondary schools to develop their understanding of how students learn and how teachers can help students to learn. The course also examines learning in a social context, demonstrating how the complex social nature of schools impacts on students development and academic achievement.
