My role is leadership, management, and coaching via introductions, questions, structuring the pile of information, and providing feedback R.B. Fuller For me, what makes teaching interesting is that I get to create, show, tell, and test/ask how that works for you. Scientific Method Discussion - what are the steps? Steps The scientist

1.4.2. Perspectives for learning Awareness Become aware of the first list of concepts See the Gaps Be aware that these lists are incomplete (are "Swiss Cheese"). Nervous system structure Understand learning by getting a better picture of how the brain is organized. Brain as a scaffold What structure supports learning? Learning happens in an existing structure. What is the structure? Levels of processing from perception to action Example: All the maps in the brain Classes program your brain's information scaffold, software can write it out.

1.4.3. Learning Itself Learning is experience based change in the nervous system. Most of the input to the brain is from the brain. Constant chatter, constant usage. But...we experience new situations and external stimuli all the time. These meet via perception, attention, & memory. Fast, Slow Permanent, Short term Pavlov & Classical Conditioning Associative learning (linking correlated events) Linking events we don't control. Main Terms Later Discoveries Examples Skinner & Operant Conditioning Causing action through Consequences Linking events we do control. Ideas Reinforcement & Schedules Tools "Cognitive learning" Observational learning Language learning Cognitive maps Latent learning (not reinforced, but learned anyway)

4.1.1. Development Issues Developmental Psychologists Nature/Nurture Continuity / Stages Stability / Change Genetics DNA RNA Genome Epigenome Chromosomes Nucleus Heredity Environment (internal & external) Teratogen Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, Autism (and theory of mind) Enriched vs impoverished environments. Brain Development in every neural system (motor, sensory, cognitive, social, etc) Goes in stages, maturation, critical periods, relates to cell growth, cell death (neural pruning), and improving the wiring among cells (myelin is the insulation, myelination is the creation of that wrapping around ncurons) Theories & areas of study Jean Piaget (Body & Mind) Attachment, attachment styles, and what children need Parenting styles Kohlberg (Morals) Erik Erikson (8 Life Stages) We study everything that changes with age: feelings, cognition, memory, sexuality, all of it.

4.1.2. Gender & Sexuality Definitions the state of being male or female (typically used with reference to social and cultural differences rather than biological ones) "Sex" refers to the biological and physiological characteristics that define men and women. "Gender" refers to the socially constructed roles, behaviours, activities, and attributes that a given society considers appropriate for men and women. How many categories of gender? How many sexes are there? What are the typical traits? What are typical differences between the sexes and/or genders? Biology Genetics Hormones (Estrogen, Testosterone) Sexual differentiation in development Sexual orientation Society List the social impact of sex and gender differences. Gender roles, identity, typing, schema Sexual orientation Sex Physiology of Psychology of Behavior & Orientation Sex differences (physiology, cognition, society) Development of sexual characteristics, behaviors, and beliefs Evolution & natural selection Culture Evolutionary psychology (good evidence, or bogus stories)?

4.1.3. Sensation & Perception Sensation (getting input) Perception (working with input) Processes Transduction Thresholds Sensory adaptation Perceptual Set Illusions Parallel processing Sensory receptors process the information, feature detection in brain via parallel processing, recognition, scene, attribute meaning. Behavior happens somewhere in there, some is reflexive and fast, other behavior happens after we "understand" what is going on. Mechanisms Receptors Sensory systems
