From the Instructor:
Welcome to Psych 213a. Your instructor will be John Olmsted MA, Med. I have been at PCC for the past 16 years. The format of the course is to create a team of learners out of the class. All work is shared with others. There are no tests or quizzes. The class is writing intensive (not formal term papers). Research has shown that the more you write the more you learn.
Course Specific Requirements:
The course will rely heavily on accessing current brain related articles,videos and blogs. The text assigned is 'Biopsychology' by Pineal. Please get a back edition (anything in the past 6 years is fine) to save you a lot of money. Welcome
Web Technical Requirements:
Please be sure to read the Technical Requirements for this delivery mode.
