From the Instructor:
The assignments in the this course are based on what we know about how the brain learns. The course is writing intensive (not formal term paper writing). You will be putting into your language all that you learn and share it with others. The class becomes a learning team. There are no tests, quizzes or exams. It is a difficult class because we are learning about the most complex organ in the universe (it is sits on top of your shoulders). Grading is primarily on effort, putting in the work each week of the term.
Course Specific Requirements:
There is a required text you will be asked to get used. Students will receive an e mail aprox two weeks before class starts with the text options. The first option is 'Biopsychology' by Pinel. An ability to search the web for high validity sources on the brain is at the center of the class. You will be given much guidance on this. At first it will take time as you learn to navigate but it will get faster over time.
Web Technical Requirements:
Please be sure to read the Technical Requirements for this delivery mode.
Students with Disabilities:
Students with disabilities should notify their instructor if accommodations are needed to take this class. For information about technologies that help people with disabilities in taking Web based distance learning classes please visit the Office for Students with Disabilities website.
