EDUC 1300 - Learning Frameworks: 1st Year Experience Course Description
This course teaches concepts from the learning sciences to help students acquire the strategies and the tenacity necessary to succeed in mathematics, in other college coursework, and within their future careers: research and theory in the psychology of learning, cognition, and motivation; factors that impact learning, and 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.Course instruction focuses on four main content strands: developing and maintaining motivation for college success, developing and using study strategies and skills, building community and connecting to campus resources, and developing a college completion plan.
