Learning and Cognition Handbook
The primary goal of the Learning and Cognition Handbook is to integrate concepts from the discipline of learning and cognitive psychology into a usable and professional guide that is designed for a specified audience.
The purpose of the handbook is to share helpful strategies, apply the chosen construct to seven sub-constructs in the field, and present a holistic guide for others that can be used in the discipline.
- Socio-Cognition: Social Interactions in Learning
(ages 3-11, early and middle childhood).
In this section, students will provide information that communicates how and why the chosen construct of learning and cognition affects the following sub-constructs through synthesizing learning principles and/or theories. For each of the sub-constructs, students will apply basic research methods and skeptical inquiry to explain the theoretical perspectives and empirical findings that substantiate the relationship between the construct and the sub-constructs. Although creative liberties are encouraged, all information incorporated should be supported and professionally presented through the consistent application of ethical principles and adherence to professional standards of learning and cognition psychology as applied to the chosen audience.
Information for each sub-construct will be presented in 500 to 700 words.
- Problem Solving
- Memory Development/Retention
- Lifelong Learning
- Domains and Domain Learning
- Affective Outcomes of Emotion
- Effects of Demographic Differences (e.g., gender, socioeconomics, religious affiliation, race)
