Module Description: The principles, concepts and theories of human learning psychology are presented in detail with emphasis on cognitive approaches, their interpretation of how learning occurs and what is required to orient teaching to respond to the nature of learning. The personality of the human being, the issues of personal learning characteristics, the situation of human motivation for learning are examined from a research perspective and from the viewpoint of classroom applications. Specific aspects of learning language, mathematics, science, leadership and special education are explored. The main concepts, principles, methods and controversies concerning the measurement of student leaning are also examined including how the statistical tools and procedures are applied in testing and assessment in different subject disciplines.
