Introduction to Psychology: The Psychology of Learning
Understand the different ways we learn
How do people learn different behaviours? How does biology affect our ability to learn new things?
On this course you will answer these questions and others, exploring the psychology of learning. You will consider the difference between learned and instinctive behaviours and approaches to how we learn - for instance, you’ve probably heard of Pavlov and his dog, an example of classical conditioning. But you’ll also learn about operant conditioning (learning behaviours based on positive or negative consequences), and observational learning (watching other people and imitating their behaviour).
