Description

General Psychology is a one-semester course designed to expose and familiarize students with the basic concepts and principles of psychology and psychological investigation. Psychology is a vast field that investigates every aspect of behavior.

This course is designed around 16 standard modules that can be adapted by CE instructors in multiple ways. Both instructor resources (e.g., lesson plans, media, a compendium of web-resources) and student-learning aids will be provided via UEN Canvas. While there are expectations related to scope (see below), instructors are expected to tailor their courses to fit their expertise as well as the specific needs of their classes. In each of the 17 modules (see below) five key concepts have been identified and course materials (assignments and demonstrations for students, support materials for instructors).

Course Goals & Learning Objectives

There are six broad goals for this course. All class activities (e.g. readings, online content, labs, quizzes, etc.) are designed to help students meet, and/or assess their progress on, these goals.

Goal 1. Knowledge Base of Psychology: Demonstrate familiarity with the major concepts, theoretical perspectives, empirical findings, and historical trends in psychology.
