Transcript of Science of Psych for Campus 101 Class

1.1 What defines psychology as a scientific field of study and what are psychology’s four primary goals?
Before we go too far, let's talk about what you will need to do to be successful in this class.
Goals of Psychology

CONNECT with others around you and contribute to their learning. Write about psychology concepts on your Facebook wall. Discuss something controversial at the dinner table. Send out a quick psychology text message while your studying.
EXTEND your knowledge through critical thinking and recognizing how psychology applies to you and the world beyond. This takes time, re-reading and effortful thought.
RECOGNIZE definitions and patterns within the subject matter and elaborate upon your articulation of psychological concepts.
Talk about psychology outside
of the classroom!

If you don't have a clear structure for the prezi in mind, simply put in what you can think of:
Ideas, details, Images.
Once they are all on the canvas, it will be easier to find the structure and write key statements.
1.2 How did structuralism and functionalism differ, and who were the important people in those early fields?
A portraint of one
of the most famous case studies in the history of psychology? What would we find if we looked inside him?

Think of it this way--
structuralism is like
what the buildings are made of, and...
...functionalism is like what we do in and around those buildings.
Just remember that both
are needed to understand
what a city is all about.
1.3 What were the basic ideas and who were the important people behind the early approaches known as Gestalt, psychoanalysis, and behaviorism?
Of course, Watson and Freud are two important theorists, but if you wanted to train a fish how to play soccer, who would you choose for your coach. Would your coach be more likely to employ psychoanalytic or behavioral techniques in this rigorous training??
1.4 What are the basic ideas behind the seven modern perspectives, as well as the important contributions of Skinner, Maslow, and Rogers?
Think you know?? Then go to Facebook and try to convince your BFF that fish just might be World Cup contenders one day!!
Psychology is everywhere and it happens
quickly. If you don't stop, look and think...you might just miss it.
Think about your time. Do you have enough of it? Enough for yourself? For family? Your job? This class? These are important questions to consider as you begin this class.
The modern perspectives in psychology include psychodynamics, behaviorism, humanism, biopsychology, cognition, evolution and the sociocultural. Though these perspectives differ in a number of important ways, they all tend to agree that people need time each day to engage in self-discovery.
1.5 How does a psychiatrist differ from a psychologist, and what are the other types of professionals who work in the various areas of psychology?
1.6 Why is psychology considered a science, and what are the steps in using the scientific method?
Let's go to the learning objectives
1.7 How are naturalistic and laboratory settings used to describe behavior, and what are some of the advantages and disadvantages associated with these settings?
Psychologists follow rigorous research steps and focus primarily on topics that can be scientifically or empirically studied.
1.8 How are case studies and surveys used to describe behavior, and what are some drawbacks to each of these methods?
The fascinating tale of Phineas Gage provides important information about the functioning of the brain.
1.9 What is the correlational technique, and what does it tell researchers about relationships?
What do YOU
Mr. Edmonds rocks!! Maybe I'll try out some of my own stuff later in the semester. Have you heard "I've Been Working on My Neurons"? You will!!
1.10 How are operational definitions, independent and dependent variables, experimental and control groups, and random assignment used in designing and experiment?
1.14 What are the basic principles of critical thinking, and how can critical thinking be useful in everyday life?
I say, "Recognize, Extend and Connect." But that's a generic method for students. What are some specific critical-thinking criteria that psychologists might use?
R.E.C. Critical Thinking
Learning Objectives
The Science of Psychology
1.12 What are the basic elements of Amabile’s creativity experiment?
I'll get you started with the dependent variable--Participants' art projects were assigned a particular rating based on judgments of
1.11 Why are the placebo and experimenter effects problems for an experiment, and how can single-blind and double-blind studies control for these effects?
This is the definition of a placebo: "An innocuous or inert treatment given to members of a control group in an experiment." Researchers compare changes in the control group with those in a treatment group to get a better sense of the true impact of a treatment.
This is the band
called "Placebo."
The End!
1.13 What are some ethical concerns that can occur when conducting research with people and animals?
Minimizing pain and suffering is a big ethical concern. What steps might the researchers using these animals take totreat the animals ethically?
everyone. Dr. B
