EDU1001 Foundations in Learning


This is a first-semester college credit course designed to introduce students to habits and skills needed for successful transition to college. The purpose is to orient students to a culture of goal setting, strategic learning, self-advocacy and meta-cognition, through an interactive hands-on curriculum. The course will emphasize establishing short and long term goals for self management, development of strategies to implement those goals, and will include active participation in resources such as Center for Academic Support, Technology, and Coaching. Use of technology will be introduced and will be emphasized for active reading, note-taking, test taking and summary writing. Organization of time, materials and project planning will be modeled, practiced and assessed. Readings from a variety of college-level materials will be used to begin development of individual strategy systems to extract essential ideas and implied meanings and work to think critically and summarize these ideas. Students will learn about the laws that protect individual with learning disabilities and develop their own voices to appropriately advocate for themselves in academic settings. Credits: 3.000
