Week Three, Discussion Question One Your Name Here AXIA College of the University of Phoenix BEH 225 Instructor, Name Here Month and Day, 2009 Provide one example each of classical and operant conditioning in your own life. Identify either the stimulus and response or reinforcers in each case. Which type would you prefer for learning and why? One example of classical conditioning has and continues every morning prior to my leaving for work. When I walk to the pantry [where my dog’s food is stored] and subsequently withdraw a can of dog food, my dog stares at his bowl and soon after, his attention is focused primarily on my movement toward the electric can opener. Upon hearing the noise of the can opener, he sits down near his bowl and his attention bounces between my motions and his bowl. I cannot say with certainty which stimulus is or stimuli are responsible for his reactions or his identifying that it is time to eat prior to my emptying the can’s contents into the bowl.

    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.
