Final Post

Learning behavior and research can be useful in dog training and other aspects such as pranks. In this video they use it for good.

In this course I've refreshed my knowledge on classical conditioning and variables, learned a lot about how studying animal behavior is key into understanding human behavior. This course should definitely be a pre-requisite for experimental psychology.

In general, my favorite part of the course was definitely the content. It can be applied in every day life and can be used to full advantage to condition people to do the things that you want. The one thing that I did not like about the course though, was the pace. I feel putting 16 weeks of education into 4 is very difficult to accomplish and Berg did an excellent job however as a pupil I found it difficult to keep up with working full time and having another summer class as well. Overall, this course can be used in everyday life to dog training, to pranks.


  1. I didn't like the fact that this class went by so fast either. It was also difficult for me to keep up because I had two other classes. I would have rather this course be a lecture course but I still enjoyed it.

  2. I agree with your favorite part of the class. Every life situation can be linked back to one of the theories, and if not one than more. It helps understand why people do the things they do, and to understand the thought process behind it.

  3. I agree, the course did feel like it went by too fast. Everything I studied I tried to plug in to my daily life and even how I try to raise my daughters.
