This course draws from research in the cognitive sciences, education, and computer sciences. It covers three broad themes around sociocultural, design, and cognition domains. Learners are expected to become competent in understanding cognitive and sociocultural perspectives on learning, as well as perspectives on the design of learning environments for teaching and learning in both school and non-school settings. In addition, the relevance and impact of the learning sciences on specific learning technologies is explored and demonstrated.

In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.
For additional information, and an up-to-date list of the writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Drexel University Writing Center page
