This project-based course provides students an authentic learning experience informed by the current knowledge about how we learn. Specifically, students become knowledgeable about the motivational, cognitive, and neurobiological processes that underlie learning and follow the basic principles of self-regulated learning for university students to reach their self-selected learning goals. An inquiry approach is adopted through the assignments giving students an opportunity to reflect on their specific learning needs for mastering something new while engaging with various mental tools. Open to any student who wants to infuse their university experience with activities and projects that develop their potential.
