Educational psychology is for everyone who is interested in how insights derived from psychology can be applied to improve the teaching-learning process at all levels of instruction. We will focus on key movements within educational psychology, with special emphasis on William James, social cognitive and constructivist views of learning, cognition, and motivation. An important aim is to examine issues and controversies in educational psychology research and theory and to explore their relevance to, and implications for, educational practices. Students are asked to evaluate research findings and theoretical perspectives and to apply the major principles and concepts derived from educational psychology to pressing educational problems.
