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. (Students may NOT earn credit for
both EDUC-1300 and PSYC-1300.)
