Cognitive skills form the foundation for functioning in everyday life, and these skills take on added importance in older adulthood. This course focuses on selected theoretical approaches and current research related to cognitive aging. Students review normative and non-normative cognitive changes, assessment techniques, and prevention/intervention efforts. Central to discussions is how students can apply information of this course to professional settings.

In the three weeks prior to the start of class, students will receive course information and access instructions via email from the Iowa State campus coordinator, Iowa State Online
The email will include instructions for how students can set up their Iowa State Net-ID and password which is needed to log into Iowa State’s Canvas system. It typically takes 1-2 business days after setting up a Net-ID before students can log into Iowa State’s Canvas. Courses may not be visible in Canvas until the first day of class.
If students experience problems registering for a Net-ID, they can contact the Iowa State Solution Center for assistance at 515-294-4000. Students will need their 9-digit ISU university ID (provided in the ISU campus coordinator email) for the Solution Center to assist them. The Solution Center is open evenings and weekends.
