Education 98/198 : Exploring Learning Differences, The Power of Divergent Learning and Creativity

This course will focus learners to learn about their learning at the research university.  We will explore three central questions about learning:  1) How does learning work? 2) How do I learn best? 3) How do I cultivate divergent learning and creativity in a learning environment that embraces innovation, critical thinking, and applying knowledge to create solutions that change the world?  How might divergent thinking and creativity be embraced to increase productivity, enjoyment, and motivation in an undergraduate's learning process at a complex research university with heightened learning demands and intellectual opportunity?

This 2 unit seminar-course assists students with learning differences 1) to increase their knowledge about specific learning processes, 2) to unpack the new learning demands in a rich, research university learning environment, 3) to improve the applications of effective learning and study strategies, 4) to enhance learning by using assistive technology and campus resources.  Contact instructor Alex de Guia for more information (510/643-7769).
