The focus of the Cognition, Creativity, Instruction, and Development (CCID) concentration is on how learning, development, and instruction influence what we do, how we think, what we believe, and who we become. Without appropriate learning opportunities and supportive environments, people will never develop their full cognitive and creative potential. Without a full understanding of how these processes operate, and of how such knowledge can be applied to provide effective learning experiences and contexts, many children will continue to be denied that opportunity. Students and faculty in CCID are dedicated to addressing these needs.
The CCID program is interdisciplinary, offering students the opportunity to benefit from the diverse perspectives and lenses offered by different academic disciplines within the department and college and across the university. CCID faculty mentors help students develop a program of study tailored specifically to their own personal interests and professional plans. In addition, they provide CCID students with opportunities to assist and partner in research projects as Apprentice Scholars, leading to authorship on conference presentations and journal articles. CCID Apprentice Scholars also receive training and experience in grant preparation and submission, preparing them to secure funding for research their own research, application, and training projects once as they pursue their professional careers. CCID prepares students for positions in research universities and institutions of other higher education and for professional leadership in learning, development, instruction, and in-service and pre-service teacher training in public and private schools.
