EDU 527 Cognitive Psychology: Reading list

EDU 527 Cognitive Psychology 

Department: Master of Education
Module Description: Cognitive Psychology is the study of the ‘mind’ and mental functions, including learning, memory, attention, perception, reasoning, language, conceptual development, and decision making. This module provides specialised knowledge of a range of theoretical approaches to cognitive psychology with evidentiary support from experimental and empirical research. Subjects that relate directly to education are considered in more depth, with coverage of both classic and current research into cognitive processes. Over 9 weeks, students will explore the relationship between mind and brain, the modularity of brain and mind. The notion of different levels/frameworks of description and explanation will also be discussed. Students will be given the opportunity to prepare and deliver an oral presentation, before conducting a literature review on an education-related topic. This will then be used to inform answers on an Essay-based final Exam.
