Sinopsis: Designed to apply learning theory and principles to the presentation of learning, this text shows how learning principles work in both animals and people. Throughout the book, the authors show how the study of learning helps solve practical problems, such as improving study skills, improving relationships, raising children, and effectively stopping smoking. This book is both solidly based in research and engaging for the student. To help ensure that students understand the materials, the authors strategically include multiple opportunities for review and self-testing within the text.
Biografía del autor:
Dr. Russell Powell earned his Ph.D. in psychology under the late Frank Epling and David Pierce at the University of Alberta. Now serving as Chair of Psychology and Sociology at MacEwan University in Edmonton, Alberta, Dr. Powell was the first instructor to develop and offer university-level courses via computer-managed learning--a nontraditional, alternative delivery format. He has taught and published across a diverse range of areas, including social psychology, experimental psychology, operant conditioning, sleep paralysis nightmares and Freud criticism. Recently, Dr. Powell has become involved in the controversy over the nature and causes of dissociative identity disorder, coauthoring articles promoting a social learning perspective that have appeared in the CANADIAN JOURNAL OF PSYCHIATRY (Powell and Gee, 1999) and PSYCHOLOGICAL BULLETIN (Lilienfeld et al., 1999).
Like many students, I found sociology quite by accident. While trying to find a course that would fulfill a Canadian content requirement for a B.Ed. degree en route to a teaching career, I stumbled across an introduction to sociology course advertised with descriptive words like "people," "society," "families," and "deviance" that sounded interesting. I could never have known then that my tendency to say "don't assume" and "don't take people for granted" underscored the beginnings of the development of my sociological imagination. After completing an introduction to sociology, my interest was piqued; I switched to the sociology program, where I earned a B.A., followed by an M.A. and Ph.D. I went on to teach sociology full-time at Grant MacEwan University, where I continue to teach a range of courses: introductory sociology, social psychology, criminology, and social research methods. I love teaching, and I appreciate my students even more. They have inspired me to write resources that will contribute to their success, including study guides, manuals, Web-based course tools, and especially this textbook. I am also interested in student ratings of instruction and student assessments of instructors' character strengths--the focus of my current research interests. I constantly re-evaluate my initial assumptions of people and social situations while maintaining allegiance to the Chinese proverb: He who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the person who is doing it.
Lynne Honey--a self-described "evolutionary behaviorist"--completed a Ph.D. in experimental psychology in Jeff Galef's lab at McMaster University, studying the role of social learning on alcohol consumption in rats. She has published a number of papers on this topic and considers social learning to be one of the most powerful adaptations available to our species and others. Dr. Honey joined the Department of Psychology at MacEwan University in 2003 because of its focus on teaching and student engagement. She currently conducts research on human social behavior in an evolutionary context, including studies of dominance, attraction, and cooperation.
