Syllabus

A goal of education is for students to learn and remember what is taught. However, HOW students learn is not always straight forward. This unit will explore the application of learning and memory findings in educational contexts. A general survey of learning and memory findings, including animal and human experiments, will be discussed. Students will explore relevant research, theories, and useful knowledge surrounding important educational questions of learning and memory and understand this knowledge in relation to educational contexts.
