I took this course in the Fall of 2011 with Professor Dawn Schrader.


Educational psychology is the application of psychological concepts to educational settings such a schools, and the study of the interaction between what we know about people as learners, schools and social and learning environments, people in relation to each other, and differences between individuals. Effective teaching and learning requires an understanding of another person’s way of making sense of knowledge and information, and working from that perspective to challenge and support their efforts in learning.

Course Notes

Note Professor Schrader has asked that personal notes as well as lecture slides not be posted online. While I do not agree with restricting the posting of personal notes in principle, I will respect her request. Please contact me directly should you desire a copy of my notes. I will only release them to people I know directly.
