Areas of Study

Course Overview

Revolutions in modern understanding about how children learn, the optimal conditions for learning in development and when in development children learn which types of information best, have led to the creation of a new discipline called Educational Neuroscience. This new field provides a most relevant level of analysis for addressing today’s core problems in education. Students may expect to leave the seminar with general knowledge of overarching issues in language learning, reading, child development, educational assessment, educational intervention, and school, policy, and family processes associated with young children, especially young deaf visual learners.
