Demonstrate an understanding of classical and operant conditioning, and social cognitive learning. 5. Identify theories and characteristics of processing, storing and retrieving memory. 6.

Course Format: Guest Lecturers The Psychology department is in the process of restructuring how PSYC 120 is taught here at Purdue. Your class section is the first to be exposed to this new format. You will have the opportunity to hear lectures from a variety of psychology faculty. Each is an expert in his/her topic. After each guest lecturer completes his/her topic, I will use one class period to reinforce this material and/or complete an activity related to the topic that was just discussed.

    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.
