The course Foundations of Educational Technology offered students an analysis of the core concepts of the masters program. Many distinctions were made such as concepts that make training different from teaching. The most enduring concepts I took away from the class was the discussion of 4 main learning theories.

I arrived at this course latter than most students thanks to my enrollment being 1 semester late. However, that allowed me to see the real value in the four main concepts listed above. After many hours of reading numerous research articles based on modern learning theories I had never quite seen such profound academic theory underpinnings all in a brief synopsis. I enjoyed seeing the root of all of my academics studies so much I decided to make an extra diagram for that week's assignment.
