About EDUC 1300

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 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 in the college success course will be able to

  • assess and report on their strengths, preferences, and college and career success attributes.
  • identify, describe, and utilize campus support services, systems, and student life opportunities.
  • use financial literacy knowledge and skills to create a personal money management plan for college success.
  • formulate educational and career goals and apply strategies to advance their goals and college performance.
  • create an academic plan and identify the requirements for successful completion of their academic plan.
  • establish collegial relationships with LSCS faculty, staff, and peers.
