Society, Stress and the Brain (EDCI 331) familiarizes students with brain development and the learning process in the context of complex social conditions such as poverty, instability, and fear. Throughout this online course, students study the effects of stress on the learning process and consider methods of instruction and interaction that address the various developmental needs of children in diverse contexts (i.e. schools, families, and discursive contexts). This course is particularly relevant to those invested in the fields of education, counseling, psychology, law enforcement, and social work as we explore different methods of interaction and discourse that relate to locus of control and agency.
