Error-less Learning and our Efforts and the Advancement of our Children the paper needs to be 7-10 pages double-spaced pages; no larger than ” margins, 11-12 pt font; the Cover Page, Abstract and References pages are not included in this page limit, the 7-10 pages are for text of the paper only) on a topic related to the psychology of learning, selected by you, but must be approved by me (in the conference area). For the paper, you will need to choose an issue related to the topics we discuss in class and examine how this issue has been applied to human behavior. Learning theory has many useful applications in the real world. The purpose of this paper is to research a learning concept in your book and apply it to a real-world situation. The paper must be written in APA format, contain a cover page, an abstract at the beginning of the paper, proper in-text citations, and a properly formatted references page.
The paper should be double-spaced, use no smaller than 11-pt font, and have margins no larger than 1-inch. There are a great number of issues/therapies/treatments related to human learning and you are welcomed to write about anyone that you find that interests you. Several assignments will be due throughout the semester that will aid in your preparation for the research paper. Additionally, if you choose to purchase Sniffy the Virtual Lab Rat with your book, you have the option of writing your paper on some aspect of using this program, such as shaping and having Sniffy learn a FR50; you would still need to adhere to the requirements of the assignment, however, your real-world application would be actually training a “lab rat” in a more experimental context and your experiences with how challenging this can actually be. If you are interested in this as your paper, please note this when you submit
your paper topic. You will need to learn how to use the Sniffy program and there is a slight learning curve, in addition to understanding how to save data files, to continue training with already-saved data files, etc. Follow these steps in writing your paper (for a schedule of how to write the paper, please see Course Content)
Research a concept in learning theory that is referenced in your book.) Obtain at least ten (10) sources of information not including the textbook.
At least seven (7) sources must be from peer-reviewed journals. You must consult databases such as PsycINFO or
Academic Search Premier to find peer-reviewed journal articles. Journal of Behavior Therapy and Experimental Psychiatry are two examples of peer-reviewed journals. If you have any questions regarding acceptable journals, please ask me. If you have any questions on how to search for peer-reviewed articles using the UMUC library, please consult the Library How-To video posted in the conference area and under Cource content. Note: Information
obtained through online search engines such as Google or Yahoo does not count as having come from a peer-reviewed journal (Google Scholar is an exception, but if using this, you must be able to find the original full-text journal article in PDF or print format).
I will not accept Wikipedia, Web MD, or other resources like these as citations counting towards your 10 total references. If you cite these in addition to 10 other, more appropriate resources, that is acceptable. More appropriate websites and web resources include any of the NIH Institutes’ websites, such as the National Institutes of Mental Health or the National Institute on Drug Abuse, etc, TIME, Newsweek, etc.) Write the paper in two sections: The first section will present information on the selected learning concept. This section will be based on the articles that you have obtained. This should make up about 50% of your paper. The second section will be your application of the learning concept to a real-world issue. For example, you could apply the concept of positive reinforcement to a need for increasing productivity in a business. This should make up about 50 percent of your paper. Semester Assignments (also appearing in the Calendar; you can work ahead on these if you would like, the areas in the Assignments section will be available for uploading throughout the semester)
