Details about this class

Hi, and welcome to PSY 215! Development is probably my favorite area of psychology, and there is so much fascinating material to dive into, so I hope you'll join us this quarter :)

Some quick notes you might be wondering about...

Course Modality

Our class is what's called an "online-remote hybrid" course, which means that instead of meeting twice a week, we meet just once a week on Zoom (Mondays from 10 - 11:50 pm). This doesn't mean we only cover half the material though! Instead, our remote meetings will be blended with additional, self-directed online work in place of a second weekly meeting.


Participating in our weekly Zoom sessions is an important (and I hope enjoyable!) part of class, so attendance/participation does earn you points toward your final grade-- but I'm looking more to reward you for engaging than to penalize you if an emergency comes up! Everyone gets a "free" (no questions asked/no points deducted) absence, and you can make up attendance points with an alternate assignment if needed.

I hope to see you this Fall!


There is no additional technology required for this class.
