EPSY 767 Social Emotional Learning
This course is designed for the student interested in learning and applying knowledge of educational psychology. More specifically, the goal is to help students understand how learners grow and develop, recognizing that patterns of learning and development vary individually within and across the cognitive, linguistic, social, emotional, and physical areas resulting in the ability to design and implement developmentally appropriate, relevant, and rigorous learning experiences. In addition, students will learn how to create learning environments that support individual and collaborative learning while encouraging positive social interaction, active engagement in learning, and self-motivation. An additional goal of the course will be to help students to learn to integrate social-emotional learning (SEL) with character development into their curriculum.
