Module 6: Learning

This is a very important module, with a number of key people, terms, and concepts discussed. It is also a difficult module, because it is easy to get these concepts confused.

Make sure that you:

  • Do ALL the activities in the Module - even if there's nothing to turn in for credit!
  • Read all the assignments - and take notes when doing so.
  • Actively engage in your course - the more active you are in your learning, the more likely it is you will retain the information.
  • Also, please look at the Due Dates for this Module - testing for this Module is IMMEDIATELY after you get back from the Thanksgiving Break - PLAN AHEAD!

INSTRUCT: Learning

Please take time to watch the Developing Psychology segment for Sensation & Perception.

"Learning is the eighth program in the DISCOVERING PSYCHOLOGY series. This program discusses the basic principles of how we learn; classical, instrumental, and operant conditioning; and the role that stimuli and consequences play in learned behavior and habits. You'll explore how renowned researchers Ivan Pavlov, B. F. Skinner, Edward Thorndike, and John B. Watson contributed to what we know about human and animal learning."

Take some time this week to view these episodes!
