CEP 810: What is Learning?

This is our first week of learning in CEP 810.  We read Bransford, Brown, and Cocking’s (2000) How People Learn and then created an essay about our understanding of what learning is and also how the learning process is different between experts and novices.  I defined learning as a process of understanding by applying the facts you were taught, and that prior knowledge can also harm new learning from taking place.  I also expressed my beliefs for how experts may know a lot about their discipline but in order to be an expert teacher you must also ensure you are an expert in pedagogy as well.  You can read my entire essay here, but remember even if you become an expert make sure to encourage yourself to continue learning!  If you have any questions or comments please share!
