How do students learn in schools? What role do individual differences play in learning? How can you improve learning environments to more optimally help students learn and develop?
Common to all these processes is that they take place while and because we interact. Interaction is the motor of learning and development, and it is therefore key to improving education.
While we all can recognize these interactions, in this Master track you will learn to take a scientific, evidence-based approach to examine these day-to-day interactions. We take a close look at the complex processes through which we learn academic subjects, we develop cognitive and meta-cognitive skills, and we acquire social competencies.
Different theoretical perspectives and didactic approaches come together in this Master track to understand learning processes in context, and to examine the challenges that arise in optimizing learning environments to learners' needs.
