A video course for K-12 teachers; 13 half-hour video programs, print guide, and Web site; graduate credit available
This video-based course is an exploration of learning theory — appropriate for grades K-12 and all subject areas — for the training of preservice teachers and the professional development of inservice teachers. Hosted by Stanford University professor Linda Darling-Hammond, the 13 half-hour programs illustrate a variety of learning theories with applications to classroom practice. A Web site and print guide supplement the videos, with background readings, questions for discussion, and ongoing assignments that bring theory into practice.
