PSY 545 Seminar in Learning Theory

3 Credit(s) W-III

This seminar provides an opportunity for intensive study, in a small-group setting, in learning theory. Students will read and analyze advanced literature in learning theory and will engage in a substantial amount of informal and formal writing. Through revision of written work (based on feedback from peers and instructors), and through discussion of writing processes and conventions used by psychologists (e.g., from the publication guidelines of the American Psychological Association), students will learn to express themselves more effectively. Students will also reflect upon the ways that writing can support learning of advanced concepts in the learning theory subfield. The specific topic will be announced in advance. Three lecture hours per week.  
Prerequisite: WII course, PSY203S  , PSY210 , and at least six credits of PSY courses numbered 300-399.
