PSY 1010/275R Learning Community Spring 2016

Hello,

We want to introduce you to a new Learning Community for Spring 2016. Jessica Hill and Cary Boone Jones are pairing together PSY 1010 with PSY 275R-a special topics inquiry-based learning class. Their goal is to enroll (specifically) at-risk students with the intent to implement a peer-mentorship model to help these students succeed in PSY 1010.

Below are the details about this Learning Community and a short link to a video marketing this Learning Community. This information will be sent to a specific population of at-risk students marketing this Learning Community soon. I have also attached a page of flyers to this email (4 flyers per page, printed front and back).

GENERAL PSYCHOLOGY

CRN: 25260

PSY 1010, Section 002

MWF 9:00 – 9:50 a.m.

Taught by: Jessica C. Hill

INQUIRY-BASED LEARNING IN PSYCHOLOGY

CRN: 27980

PSY 275R, Section 001

MWF 10:00 – 10:50 a.m.

Taught by: Cary Boone Jones

Learning Communities consist of two courses linked together to explore common themes and encourage partnerships with professors and peers. Learning Community students and faculty participate as a group in rewarding community engagement projects.

Learning Communities are different from other classes in that they are scheduled back to back, usually in the same room, with the same students in both classes. The professors of each class work together to integrate material in ways that show the connections between the two courses. This makes the material more engaging, interactive, and easy to remember and retain.

Why Join?

“Sigmund Freud once posed the question: ‘Where does a thought go when it’s forgotten?’ In Freud’s time, there was no answer to that question, nor was there a way to find an answer. Now, we have brain scanners that let us know what’s happening in the brain as we remember and forget. All of what we know about human behavior starts with a question—often one that can’t be answered at the time. Our learning community will explore human behavior through student questions, and then we will find as many answers as we can!”

-Jessica C. Hill

Psychology Professor
