Psychology of Adjustment
This course is based on principles of active learning that suggest the need for students to take an active role in their own learning in order to facilitate greater understanding and knowledge retention. Research suggests that students who work to synthesize, analyze, and actively apply the information presented will perform better on exams, remember the information beyond the quarter, and find greater enjoyment within the course (Yoder & Hochevar, 2005).
