Summary:"This syllabus is an endeavor to practice what educational psychology preaches. It applies in the educational psychology course the principle that material should be learned in the form in which it is to be used. It abandons the idea of teacher or text book setting forth a series of propositions somehow to be absorbed and some day to be applied. It calls upon the teacher to be a kind of learning engineer. The activity is in the learner. The teacher stimulates, guides, and enriches this active process. The learner is to feel a need, formulate the problem, seek answers, organize data, and test hypotheses. This is not merely the formula of the classroom. It is the mental activity which should continue throughout a lifetime of professional growth"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved).
