Omschrijving The course discusses the general mechanisms of development and learning – including contingency, semantic and adaptive mechanisms – and their relationship with learning and instruction, and the influence of instruction on learning. The notion of mechanisms of change is applied to the study of processes of teaching and learning that contribute to development. Specific attention is paid to the socially embedded nature of development, learning and instruction. Furthermore, various theoretical perspective on learning and instruction are presented, including analysis of the knowledge and skills to be achieved, description of the characteristics of the learner, description of the conditions that foster learning, and the effects of instruction. Apart from cognitive aspects, social, motivational and emotional aspects of learning will also be addressed. Students work on assignments about the literature, structured by leading questions from the lecturers.
