Full course description
This course investigates the fundamental roles in the psychology of learning; including identity, motivation, interest, prior knowledge and experience, choice and control, and how they all interact in supporting lifelong learning. You will study how informal learning facilitators/educators can build on these dimensions to successfully create and engage lifelong learners through experiences in museums, zoos, aquariums, parks, media, and other settings. This course is illustrated by real world examples of learning in free-choice settings and is designed to support future informal learning educator's efforts to engage diverse audiences and facilitate lifelong learning in disciplines such as science and mathematics.
