Proposal Title

How the Interaction between Cognition, Behaviors & Emotions Affects Learning Preference of Adults in Higher Education

Proposal Abstract

The following research studies the relationship between cognition, behaviors and emotions as adults in higher education learn new material. It asks about students’ preference in designing and planning classroom activities with various cognitive complexities to enhance learning.

The data was collected from graduate students registered in educational research course. Research usually raises some anxiety since for most education students the topic is out of comfort zone. The various cognitive levels of complexity bring up feelings and behaviors that are best dealt with by engaging students as partners in the learning process through support from peers (scaffolding) and the creation of a safe environment.

This is an interactive presentation that engages participants in various activities. Feedback from the audience will be appreciated and will contribute to the continuation and development of our study. Participants in this session will leave with some tools to implement in their classrooms.
