Spring 2017 course begins April 10 and ends June 18
This course is designed to equip both formal and informal education practitioners with an understanding and appreciation of the fundamental theories of learning and how they relate to the components of humane and prosocial education and moral development. Students will review the similarities and differences among various theories and explore and evaluate personal educational practice related to them. The course includes a detailed examination of humane education programs—critically assessing methods, intent, and the way a program correlates to academics.
Additionally, students will be encouraged to reflect on their previous experience with various theories and bridge new understandings into future practice and as they create curricula and environments that are designed to support academic, social, and emotional growth for a wide range of student abilities and diversity.
This course is part of the Certified Humane Education Specialist (CHES) credentialing program. It may be taken without committing to the full program of study.
This course has been pre-approved for 20 CE points of continuing education credit toward the Certified Animal Welfare Administrator Credential.
