EDT-5220: Human Development Teaching & Learning

The goals of educational programs are sometimes at odds with the cognitive and emotional realities of teachers and learners. Finding balance both internally and externally can help an educator to move beyond momentary limitations in order to create new learning possibilities. In this course, educators gain new insight into the moment-to-moment reality of their professional lives through a renewed understanding of human psychology and human development across the lifespan as well as the integration of kindness, compassion, and equanimity practices. Online study and discussion familiarizes participants with concepts and terms in the more recent literature of education and psychology as well as readings from Buddhist scholarship and the mindfulness in education literature.
