Module overview

This module is designed to provide you with an overview of the human cognitive system and its principles of information processing, demonstrating how these have been applied to understanding learning at different educational levels and in different educational domains. It will introduce you to theories and empirical research about how information is perceived, represented and stored in the brain, and how it is used during thinking and communication. It will give you practical experience of using some of the research methods that have been used to develop these theories, and outline how they have been applied to learning in different educational domains.
