There are many topics that fall under the umbrella of Educational Psychology. From the basics such as direct instructional practices to newer information on the effectiveness of brain-based teaching, the big questions are always, How do students best learn and how do teachers best teach? The main purpose of the Expertise Sharing Project is for students to conduct an indepth investigation into a topic from the field of Educational Psychology (topic list can be found below), design a presentation, and share findings with the other members of the class. Description of Project The graduate student will become an expert on a selected topic using information from the course text and outside research from at least five research articles (from peer-reviewed journals) to construct a PowerPoint presentation to benefit a targeted audience who is less familiar with the topic. The student will share the PowerPoint in the designated Discussion Forum and then respond to two other students who have designed PowerPoints on different topics. Presentations from other or previous courses will not be accepted.Show more
