Other Information about the Course
Welcome to Experimental Psychology. I have been a professor here for 10 years and I have taught this class face to face as well as independently. I cannot wait to get started in this semester.
This is a hybrid class, which means lectures will be held every Tuesday. Additional readings, quizzes, discussions, assignments and forums will be conducted online through Canvas. All students are expected to spend approximately three to 6 hours a week working on assignments outside the classroom setting.
If you do not have a reliable computer, please make sure to use the computers on campus or in a public library. The lab is reserved for your use on Fridays during class time. There will be no acceptable reason for not completing and handing in assignments on time for technical difficulties.
