This course guides the student to apply the fundamental principles of psychology to the teaching-learning process.
Educational Philosophy: The instructor's educational philosophy centers on interactive teaching/learning based on varied teaching strategies using readings, quizzes, dialogues, presentations, tests, internet sources, and writings. The instructor will encourage each learner in the exploration of ideas, issues, and contradictions.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment:
Student learning will be assessed by way of a Final Multimedia Presentation with accompanying written, researched support; tests & written assignments; and daily in-class interaction. A cautionary: Computers make writing and revising much easier and more productive. Students must recognize, though, that technology can also cause problems. Printers run out of ink, hard drives crash, flash drives and disks refuse to perform and email attachments do not arrive. Students must be responsible for planning ahead and meeting deadlines in spite of technology. Be sure to save copies of your work to disk and hard drive, and print out paper copies for backup purposes.

Classroom Rules of Conduct: Enthusiastic, considered interaction among the members of this classroom learning community, and any guests who may come into it, is encouraged. This interaction will be always with an attitude of respect and support
