M.Ed. Instructional Methods

This core course considers theories of learning and instruction in relation to the aims of the curriculum. The course reviews theories of learning with special attention to the relationship between teaching, learning and assessment; the values of classroom interaction; the purposes of group; individual and practical learning; and moral/affective education. Students will have opportunities to formulate and share their understanding of instructional methods in a collegial environment, the culmination of which will be the development of a teaching philosophy.
