About this Unit
Motivation and learning will be pivotal themes used to explore the diverse range of learners and learning styles which engage learners actively in developing knowledge and maximising potential. The study of motivation and learning will not only introduce the student to educational psychology but also illustrate how educational psychology underpins and informs pedagogy. Concepts of individual differences and different ways of processing informatin will underpin this unit. Theories of learning and motivation will be analysed in order to develop students' abilities of critical reflection, synthesis, application and evaluation of pedagogical principles derived from these theories to their future work environments.
