EDT-6260: The Developing Mind

Acting on the belief that everyone is a learner and can learn, teachers will explore theories of child and adult development and current research on brain development and human learning. They will use this information to examine their beliefs about students and learning and to critically reflect on their teaching practice, their work with colleagues and their own professional growth. The course will specifically explore how cognitive, moral, and self-identity development should guide the organization of classrooms and learning experiences. The course will also explore the intersection of student and adult development in classrooms. Teachers are also on a developmental journey and our own level of self-awareness and our capacity to create learning environments that are emotionally safe, kind and effective depend in part on understanding ourselves and the relationship between our developmental needs and the needs of the students we serve. This class will also explore this element intersection of teacher and student development.
