Class Experience

I was a mental health counselor for 10 years and have been a School Director/Director of Education and a college teacher for the past 20 years. I have also been a substitute teacher for several years at both the middle school and the high school (and occasionally elementary). My undergrad degree is in psychology and my graduate degree is in mental health counseling. My doctoral work is also in psychology. 
Homework outside of class will be coming up with a research question and then creating an idea for a study to find possible answers to the question. The key will be to look for potential ethical issues and how they will be addressed or minimized in order to best protect the participants in the described study. 
I will supply the required hand-outs. No additional materials are needed. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I will do a written report of the learner's strengths in the class as well as a certificate of completion. 
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
There is discussion at one point about cults (Jim Jones) and obedience to a cult leader as well as brief references to Hitler when we talk about Milgram's studies. We do not go into graphic detail but it can be disturbing hearing about mass suicides. 
I will provide hand-outs that I create throughout class.
