Welcome to Module 3: Development and Learning
In this module, you will examine the basic principles of human development as they relate to educational principles and practices. Specifically, you will explore developmental processes and begin to understand how they influence learning. You will analyze trends in cognitive development and identify how people build upon existing knowledge to develop more advanced thinking and reasoning abilities. You will close out the module by investigating how personal, social, and moral development influence behavior. Keep in mind that while most of the content in the course is geared toward elementary, secondary, and postsecondary education, the concepts and theories apply to the corporate training world as well. Environmental factors affect learning in a variety of ways, but learning can occur in any situation.
