By successfully completing this assessment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the following course competencies and assessment criteria:
Introduction to Educational Psychology
Educational psychology is the science of teaching and learning. It integrates theories of learning with research on variables that impact teaching and learning and what maximizes learning. Understanding factors that interfere with and maximize learning reduces learner frustration and leads to greater learning.
To learn more about the history, evolution, and contributions to educational psychology, read the following resource.
Mayer, R. E. (2018). Educational psychology’s past and future contributions to the science of learning, science of instruction, and science of assessment. Journal of Educational Psychology, 110(2), 174–179.
You will need to incorporate at least two scholarly journal articles into your presentation. Review the articles and videos in the Resources that relate to the behavioral learning theory, as they provide examples of the type of articles you should find as well as key words that you could use while researching. You may also find the following library guide useful:
