Understanding Learning Environments

Professor: Shelley Goldman and Roy Pea (he’s part of NETP’s Technical Working Group!)

Course Description:

This course offers a seminar experience that provides a tour through some of the primary ways in which learning has been theorized over the past several centuries. Knowing some of the basic biases, insights, and tensions of some of the traditions of learning theory is a launch pad for what you need to know as a designer of learning environments. There are many ways to structure the experiences by which we learn. We will be focusing on a few that tend to dominate in the settings and discourses of education, technology and learning sciences research.”

Another history lesson for me! Understanding where all the learning theories originated from!
