The following courses are undergraduate courses offered as part of a Minor in Organizational Learning and Teaching (MOLT). More information can be found on the main website for the Faculty of Education, University of Windsor.
Students learn about principles and theories of learning-centred practices. Specifically, students examine and synthesize the findings of current research and scholarly texts on teaching and learning to develop a critical personal understanding of learning-centred practices that are applicable to a wide range of diverse workplace contexts. Students in this course acquire, integrate, and apply knowledge pertaining to planning, instructional delivery, and the assessment and evaluation of learning. Self-, peer-, and teacher-evaluated assignments will provide students with opportunities to integrate research and practice and to facilitate the development of particular skills, notably, interpersonal communication skills, planning, facilitation and organization of learning, critical thinking, inquiry learning, and reflection.
Students examine current theories pertaining to learning and learners in diverse organizational contexts. Particular themes are examined, including the nature of learning, patterns of growth and development, the dynamics and complexities of learning in diverse educational contexts, and current educational realities in society. Specifically, students examine a number of important issues, such as: learning and cognitive processes; personal, social and moral development; individual and group differences; social-cognitive views (e.g., racial discrimination, bullying, harassment, abuse, gender bias, xenophobia, homophobia, stereotyping); motivation and cognition relevant to individual and collective learning; knowledge construction and higher-order thinking. In this course, students develop a critical awareness of learning theories and related issues and will critique, analyze, and reflect on the underlying assumptions associated with matters and the implications for individual and collective learning in learning organizations.
