EDU 534 Critical Perspectives in Educational Psychology

Department: Master of Education

Module Description: The module explores perspectives in the field of educational psychology from a critical and analytical standpoint. It aims to provide students with a deeper understanding of the theoretical frameworks, research methodologies, and practical implications of educational psychology while encouraging them to question and critically evaluate the underlying assumptions and dominant paradigms within the field. Throughout the course, students engage with various critical perspectives and theories. They analyse how these perspectives challenge traditional notions of intelligence, learning, motivation, and assessment, and how they offer alternative frameworks for understanding and addressing educational issues.
