    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the teacher was extremely honest about what to expect on the exams and he explained the material through examples, which I find makes the concepts much easier to understand. I had him as my professor the first semester I was in college and I was not disappointed.

    Course highlights:

    We got to do a presentation about either a board game or some ideas for classes that we were interested in. My group designed a class that freshmen could take regarding sexual assault on college campuses and how to prevent them and then also resources to go to after the event has happened.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You just need to make sure you know what he talks about in his lectures during class. Only about 8% of his exams come from the textbook and not from his lectures.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was an extremely interesting class. I thought when first beginning it, that it would be more theory based; however, it incorporated both theory and math to give an introduction to how learning psychology is performed.

    Course highlights:

    The professor tries to make it so that you pass the class but still where you have to try. He gives several options for achieving high grades: you can either complete the class as normal, taking exams and completing assignments or you can simply have the final exam count as your entire grade. There are two options for the final exam: you can either complete a cumulative final exam or you can complete a 5,000 word research paper of a psychology topic related to learning of your choosing. The things students learn include pavlovian conditioning, operant conditioning, reinforcement learning, scripting and math related to these concepts and more.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you decide to do the term paper, search for a topic early and try to complete the paper as soon as possible. There is a high likelihood that if you wait to do the paper too late, that the topic you chose does not have enough information for you to write a successful 5,000 word research paper. If you're struggling with the material, meet him during his office hours. There are multiple options to be successful in his class: choose the one that fits best for your learning style - sometimes, the option that you first think is best might not always be the best for you.
