Description

Class Experience

By the end of class students should have an understanding of what classical conditioning is and how they could use it to train a pet. They should have a basic understanding of how to clicker train their pet.
Psychology was a large part of my Child Youth and Family studies program in University. When I had the chance to take an elective I chose a psychology course, and I have never stopped being fascinated with the brain. I believe that it is more important to teach children how to learn than it is to force them to learn. By teaching children about the brain I aim to build life long learners who understand how to strengthen their own mind.
A bowl of bite sized healthy snacks (5-8 pieces) (the students will eat them throughout class as an experiment). A jar lid with safety button OR a clickable pen (makes a clicking sound when you press on it) Paper and pencil. OPTIONAL: dog clicker https://www.amazon.com/Dog-Training-Clicker-Wrist-Strap/dp/B07NKJHD9X/ref=sr_1_6?keywords=dog+clicker&qid=1580937457&sr=8-6 (no affiliation with amazon)
Learners will participate in discussion about training pets so they can demonstrate their understanding.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Though it is not one of our main class topics, on occasion students might ask about or show off a pet spider or snake on screen. If there is any type of animal you learner is not comfortable talking about or hearing about please let me know ahead of class time.
