Cognitive Skills Understanding Learning Challenges (1 semester credit - Adams State University)

Cognitive Skills Understanding Learning Challenges (1 semester credit - Adams State University)

We all know brain plays a major role in learning, but few are aware of how. In a class where each child differs in his ability to learn, it is essential that educators know how the brain is related to the process of learning, in order to help facilitate student performance. Such knowledge will also give the educator an advantage when faced with the challenge of teaching a child with special needs. Cognitive Skills is a two part integrated course that will equip educators with extensive knowledge about the process of learning.

The first section, Cognitive Skills: Understanding Learning Challenges, will focus on the skills involved in learning and introduce you to various techniques and strategies on identifying a child with learning difficulties and to overcome their challenges. It also provides tips on how to make learning fun, challenging and different.

The second section, Accommodating All Learners, will help you understand more about various learning styles, and how these impact the way a student learns. You will gain knowledge about specific teaching approaches that can be used to reach and teach each learning style. 

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  •     Identify learning styles and recognize need for cognitive skill development.
  •     Recognize connections between student characteristics and learning tools.
  •     Demonstrate understanding of a systemic, practical model to accommodate all learners.

  • This was a good refresher on things I learned during my teacher certification program. A lot of the content was a good reminder, and made me reflect on my current teaching situation and how I can improve. Helpful resources, that are not too overbearing.

  • This was very informative! Some is difficult to do in a classroom of many students, but really good info especially when trying to help those kids that don't qualify for aid and fall through the cracks. This is one of the best classes I've taken on this site!

  • I definitely like the flexibility of the online courses. I was very busy the first quarter of school and tried to finish the course but other urgent matters interfered. It was great to have the course available when I had the time to finish! (Please note: there was more reviewing due to the time interval but that actually was good for me.)
