This course attempts to delve deeply into the nature of the thinking process. What is thinking? How does it develop? What is intelligence? Are learning and intelligence related? We will consider current research on the process of thinking and learning styles, comparing some opposing points of view on how learning occurs and discussing the presumed stages of cognitive development. This course will give a comprehensive understanding of the potential conceptual abilities of children and adults and a framework for understanding and structuring curricula.
