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).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
