Course Description
Learning Framework
(3-3-0) A study of the 1)research and theory in
the psychology of learning, cognition, and
motivation, 2)factors that impact learning, and
3)application of learning strategies.
Theoretical models of strategic learning,
cognition, and motivation serve as the conceptual
basis for the introduction of college-level
student academic strategies. Students use
assessment instruments (e.g., learning
inventories) to help them identify their own
strengths and weaknesses as strategic learners.
Students are ultimately expected to integrate and
apply the learning skills discussed across their
own academic programs and become effective and
efficient learners. Students developing these
skills should be able to continually draw from
the theoretical models they have learned.(NOTE:
While traditional study skills courses include
some of the same learning strategies -
e.g.,note-taking, reading, test preparation etc.
- as learning framework courses, the focus of
study skills courses is solely or primarily on
skill acquisition. Study skills courses, which
are not under-girded by scholarly models of the
learning process, are not considered
college-level, and, therefore, are
distinguishable from Learning Framework
courses.)Students may NOT earn credit for both
EDUC-1300 and PSYC-1300.)
