Current Debate In Learning Theory Homework
Write a 5-7 page analysis on a featured debate on learning theory. You will explore how the evolution of learning theories and neuroscience has shaped a current learning controversy.
Learning theories evolve over time. It is important to understand how historical, political, and cultural changes affect learning theories and how they are applied. The purpose of analyzing a current learning theory debate allows you to demonstrate your knowledge of theories and critical thinking skills, as well as how to apply theory to your own specialized field of psychology.
As we discover more about how people learn, the application of learning theories also changes. An idea that worked 50, 20, or even 5 years ago might not work currently due to a shift in cultural beliefs, new knowledge, or new learning contexts. Any change in our thinking can affect the way we apply learning theories. Many times, differing perspectives can lead to productive discussions and academic debates that further the evolution of the learning theory.
