cover “the study of perception, attention, learning, remembering, thinking, development of the individual, intelligence, aptitudes, emotion, motivation, adjustment and conflict” (SJSU course catalog). Instructional orientation The following key ideas will be invoked as recurrent themes in the course: 1. The interplay between theory and data in the development of psychology as a science. 2. An integrated, holistic-organismic (i.e., mind-body) approach to the study of behavior and experience. 3. The contextual nature of human development and experience. 4. The view that individual differences in many areas (e.g., gender, race, ethnicity, knowledge, beliefs, interests, skills, abilities, religious and sexual practices, interpersonal styles) are not just a fact of life but are potential assets to social and subjective well-being. Course Goals and Student Learning Objectives Students will be assessed for knowledge acquired relating to each of the five learning objectives listed below. Assessment opportunities will occur throughout the semester and may include: (a) exam questions (e.g., multiple choice, essay, fill in the blank, matching); (b) writing assignments (e.g., short reports, essays, article summaries, or reaction papers), (c) class discussions (e.g., individual participation, small groups, or via Blackboard discussion boards); (d) in-class activities (e.g., quizzes, group work, individual assignments, questions pertaining to films/videos presented); and (e) take-home assignments/homework (e.g., worksheets, data collection activities, projects, library tutorials, web-based exercises or activities).
