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.

The course includes a detailed examination of humane education programs—critically assessing methods, intent, and the way a program correlates to academics.
