Principles of Effective Learning
A study of the research and theory in the psychology of learning, cognition, motivation, as well as the factors that influence learning, and the application of learning strategies. Theoretical model of strategic learning, cognition, and motivation serves as the conceptual basis for instruction. The course content is divided into a four-part model (the Effective Learning Model) consisting of self-assessment, cognitive theories, self-regulation, and strategies for self- change.
Effective Learning Seminar enables learners to adopt a more inquiry-based approach to learning and create greater connections between ideas, concepts, and themes across the curricula. Learners will apply real-world situations to course content and efficiently retain and apply theories and concepts taught in core and major courses.
