EDEP 768B (General): Seminar in Educational Psychology:
Identity Development and Education
Tuesdays, 4:30-7:00 pm, Wist Hall, Room 131
Instructor: Lois A. Yamauchi, PhD
How do we define ourselves? How do we form our ideas about who we are and
how does this influence how we participate as students and teachers in
education? This graduate level seminar explores theories and research
related to identity development and its influence on education. Education
is defined broadly, encompassing informal learning environments in the home
and community, as well as formal schooling. We will read and analyze
various theories of identity development and consider the ways in which
researchers have studied identity development. We will consider gender
identity, ethnic identity, and the development of professional identities.
Students will have the opportunity to explore an area of identity
development in which they are particularly interested.
Graduate students from all fields are welcome.
