Course is designed and reserved for 1st year students repeating their UB Seminar only. In this course, students will explore the most recent research on how people learn best, different kinds of learning (e.g., procedural versus content), attention and multitasking, long-term memory, and perception. Students will apply these research findings to their own learning and study behaviors to better understand how they learn most effectively. They will also learn about strategies they can employ to facilitate learning in a variety of learning environments.
Enrollment Requirements
Prerequisites: Students who have already successfully completed the first year seminar course may not repeat this course. If you have any questions regarding enrollment for this course, please contact your academic advisor.
  Course Description
The three credit UB Seminar is focused on a big idea or challenging issue to engage students with questions of significance in a field of study and, ultimately, to connect their studies with issues of consequence in the wider world. Essential to the UB Curriculum, the Seminar helps students with common learning outcomes focused on fundamental expectations for critical thinking, ethical reasoning, and oral communication, and learning at a university, all within topic focused subject matter. The Seminars provide students with an early connection to UB faculty and the undergraduate experience at a comprehensive, research university. This course is equivalent to any 199 offered in any subject. This course is a controlled enrollment (impacted) course. Students who have previously attempted the course and received a grade of F or R may not be able to repeat the course during the fall or spring semester.
