This subject will provide a general conceptual framework for understanding learning, teaching and the range of factors influencing learning. It will analyse the knowledge enhancement process from a range of evidence-based, theoretical and socio-cultural perspectives. Developmental trends in knowledge acquisition and the processes that facilitate it will be identified and evaluated. These include brain development, cognitive transformation, self-regulation, motivation, and knowledge storage and retrieval. Pedagogical approaches and conceptualisations of curriculum for fostering knowledge enhancement and effective learning will be developed. Means of fostering student motivation and engagement will be explored. There will be strong emphasis on links with current practice and on critical reflection as a paradigm for teacher self-evaluation and professional learning.
