Details about this class

This is a fully online class so there are no set meeting times. You will log into D2L to do the work when it suits your schedule. Each module is due Sunday by 11:59 PM. All modules for the course are available at the start of the term.

This is a writing intensive course that requires students to successfully utilize the PCC library in order to find additional research articles for weekly discussion posts.   

Each week the module will consist of readings from the educational resources, lecture slides to help guide note taking, a mini-lecture video provided by the instructor, video links to further immerse students in the material, a discussion forum (which requires 1 initial thread and 1 response thread), and a quiz or a test. For more information on the course expectations, please view a past course syllabus which can be found here - PSY 213 Syllabus (Spring 2022).

I look forward to having you in class!


Students need access to stable internet and D2L. Students will also need to use a word processing software (Google Docs preferred).
