Introduction to Educational Psychology Certification
Educational psychology is essentially the study of how individuals learn. Once primarily focussed on the development of children from infancy through to adolescence, the discipline has expanded over time to also include the adult learning process and this course will take you by the hand and guide you through all of the relevant concepts.

The field of educational psychology looks at the process by which humans learn and store knowledge, especially in educational settings and takes into account the emotional, social and cognitive factors involved. Although educational psychologists can use a wide variety of theoretical perspectives to evaluate problems within educational settings, there are 5 perspectives that are commonly relied upon. These are the behavioural, developmental, cognitive, social cognitive and constructivist perspectives.

This course will introduce you to all the relevant facts and details connected with the field of educational psychology. It will also help you to apply this discipline in typical scenarios in our modern world and help you to better understand why there are calls for such professionals within the workplace and educational settings.
