Welcome to the website for our Conditioning & Learning hybrid class.
This is a hybrid class and Internet Access is required!
Conditioning & Learning examines what we have learned from empirical studies of operant conditioning and respondent conditioning setting it in a basic research context. Conditioning & Learning is similar to Behavior Analysis in that we can what we know from science and use it to alter an individual's (or animal's) behavior and responses though a behavioral intervention. This course will explore the science behind behavior modification principles.
A hybrid class is one that mixes traditional classroom learning with individualized online learning. Conditioning & Learning is perfect for a hybrid course 1) There is a growing amount of web content that extends well beyond what can be included in a textbook and in simple in class demonstrations, 2) There are many high quality videos online were we can explore a variety of behavior, 3) Since the course deals with how we behave the real world, parts of the course are best experienced while in the real world, and 4) We can explore lab experiments online to get a first hand idea of how these experiments work.
