A Field-Based Educational Psychology Experience.
Beiner, Betty T.; Young, Philip B.
A new educational psychology course that combines mastery oriented content learning with direct participation in an elementary school classroom is described. The integration of theoretical-empirical information from psychology with the applied view of education in the classroom is the most important outcome of the new course. A variety of learning activities in the course are described. A preliminary evaluation shows the course to be perceived by students as difficult but interesting and worthwhile. The course involves team teaching. An important aspect of this program is that it has been designed to fit into an existing format with relatively little difficulty. (Authors)
