Learning - Behavioral Theories

  • http://server.bmod.athabascau.ca/html/prtut/reinpair.htm
    This site from Athabasca University in Canada gives students an excellent tutorial in reinforcement, one of the most difficult concepts in all of psychology for many students to grasp. The tutorial takes students about 1.5 hours to complete which limits its usefulness as an in-class activity. It is useful as an out-of-class assignment, especially for students who struggle with these concepts or for online courses.  The site begins with a concise explanation of reinforcement. Explanations of various components of reinforcement follow. Each concept is illustrated by an application example. The "lecture" part of the site is followed by an interactive quiz which students complete online. The quiz comes in both frame-enabled and non-frame-enabled formats.
