The course will focus on psychological aspects of educational process. Students will get familiar with the most crucial links between educational psychology and both developmental psychology and psychology of personality (e.g. motivation, learning, cognitive styles, family interactions). However, main part of the subject will concentrate on specific educational problems as they are viewed from psychological point of view.
