This class is a flexible-schedule class with no live meetings. Each week will begin with a video lecture uploaded by the teacher, followed by several assigned activities for students to participate in and/or upload to the classroom. (Please note that the length of the video lecture may change depending on the topic, but that on average, they will last around 45 minutes). Some examples of the main tasks are given in the topic list below. The teacher will visit the classroom at least once daily...
Students will learn the names and functions associated with parts of the brain and nervous system. Students will learn how to apply their knowledge of the nervous system to topics such as stress, anxiety, and treatment of mood disorders. Students will learn how biology can underpin the motivation for different behaviours and emotions. Students will learn terminology around genetic inheritance, and understand how to interpret information in terms of whether or not it suggests a genetic or evolutionary component to different types of behaviour.
I completed a PhD in Psychology, with a focus on Cognitive Neuroscience and Visual Perception, giving me a thorough knowledge of Cognitive and Biological Psychology. I have been working as a full time online tutor for GCSE (UK age 14-16 curriculum) and A-level (UK age 16-18 curriculum) since February 2018.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Informal feedback is given to all students who submit tasks and join in the discussion threads throughout the course. Optional: If you would like to receive a grade for your participation in this series of classes, please send me a message when enrolling, and I will provide you with a syllabus detailing what tasks will contribute to your grade.
No live meetings, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
This class will cover the biological perspective of psychology, describing from an academic viewpoint various ways in which biological factors can influence the behaviour of people and animals. Behavioural categories such as anxiety and aggression will be used to illustrate the effect of biology on behaviour. Students will not be expected to share any personal experiences but may do so if they feel comfortable giving an example on any topic.
