Course Information


Course Description

This course is the study and application of strategic approaches to learning. Strategies are presented and practiced in order for you to maximize your learning in the context of lectures, readings, recitations, and independent learning situations. The course content is based on the application of strategies to the learning requirements of the courses you are enrolled in concurrently throughout the University. Class sessions are a series of lectures, discussions, and one-on-one conferences. You are required to participate in classes and conferences and apply the strategies in your other classes.


Course Objectives

In general, the goals of the course are for you to maximize your learning in college. An awareness of how you learn is examined through the development of a variety of learning strategies. We will explore strategies in the following ways: (1) what they are, (2) how to use them, (3) when to use them (4) why they are effective and (5) how to adapt them. You will create your own strategies by defining your goals, selecting strategies, implementing them and evaluating their effectiveness in your courses.
