PSY 439 Positive Psychology
Examines psychological factors and principles that help explain positive outcomes, well-being and personal growth in humans. Areas of focus will include positive emotional experiences and appraisals such a happiness, life satisfaction, well-being, positive personal characteristics, interests and values, and positive institutions as they promote growth and fulfilling experiences. There will be a significant applied component of the class in which students will explore their own reactions and personal qualities.
These materials aim to start introducing OER to the course as well as to develop the culturally responsive dimension of the course. This is the first time using the OER textbook (Psychology 2e), so the discussion board activities are designed to pilot the textbook, get feedback from the students, and generate a ‘living anthology’ of supplementary/complementary materials that correspond to students’ experiences and interests. The activities described below are used during the first two weeks of the course. Each activity includes a Main Discussion Post and then ‘Comments’ on a classmate’s post. The grading rubrics used for assessment are included in Appendix D. The video lectures and chapter notes need further work in terms of accessibility and using copyrighted materials. The changes that have been made will serve students more equitably by decreasing financial burden and better corresponding to/representing students’ perspectives and experiences.
PSY201 Introduction to Psychology Part 1
Introduces the following major topics in psychology: history, research methods, biopsychology, sensation and perception, learning, memory, human development, consciousness, and associated topics in cognition.

What are the most effective methods to study for a test? What are the meanings of dreams? How do illusions work? With whom are you most likely to fall in love? These are just a few of the questions that have been asked by psychologists since the birth of the field as an area of scientific research in the 1870’s. This text surveys the basic concepts, theories, and pivotal findings over the past 100 years in the science of Psychology, with special emphasis on contemporary concepts and findings focused on the relation of the brain to normal and pathological behaviors. Psychology has long evolved past the psychodynamic influence to include biological, social, learning, motivational, and developmental perspectives, to name a few. Contemporary psychologists go beyond philosophical or anecdotal speculation and rely on empirical evidence to inform their conclusions. Similarly, readers will push beyond pre-existing schemas and misconceptions of the field of psychology to an understanding of contemporary quantitative research methods as they are used to predict and test human behavior.
