August 31st 2017: Alison free online course - Diploma in Educational Psychology
The Alison Course Diploma in Educational Psychology introduces the learner to the scientific study of human learning. Educational psychology provides a framework for teachers and trainers to plan, create and deliver effective lessons, and assess each student's learning.
Educational psychology draws on and combines various psychological theories and principles – such as those related to human development, motivation, learning, behavior management and assessment, among others – in order to improve the conditions of teaching and learning.
In this free online course, learners will explore the topic of educational psychology in detail. Key development theories related to the learning process are examined and practical classroom examples are supplied to engage learners throughout the course.
This course will be of great interest to learners who want to know more about the education sector and professionals who would like a greater knowledge and understanding of educational psychology.
Eric Corbett, Head of Content at Alison said, “This course can be a prerequisite for anyone interested in educating others. The study of educational psychology will help educators make better decisions about how we teach.”
