EDUC 1300/PSYC 1300 Learning Framework: ACGM Course Description

A study of the 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 the 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 and cultural aspects discussed across disciplines to become effective and efficient learners. Students will gain an understanding of cultural diversity and cultural systems related to environmental circumstances. Students will be able to communicate and relate individuals from multiple cultures in today's global community.
