Details about this class

Welcome to PSY101 — I am excited to start to explore psychology and its many, many impacts in our world with you!

This is a hybrid course, meaning we will meet in person once a week and do online work and activities to replace some in-class learning. All work will be completed and submitted online through D2L Brightspace. Much of your work will be submitted online outside of the class meeting in preparation for that meeting and for each exam over the term. The course page on D2L is not complete, but expect to get an announcement about details of the course a week or so before class starting. For a full overview of what we cover in this course, please take a look at the Course Content and Outcomes Guide for PSY101

I want you all to know that I understand that online learning is still quite difficult to access and absorb, so I will do my best to actively support students navigating the course and its blended format. With that said, our in class meeting time together during the term is limited, so attendance is expected. This course is designed around our regular class meetings and in-person lectures are not recorded. Students looking for a course that does not meet would be best served by fully online courses as they are designed to support that type of learning.


There is no additional technology required for this class.
