Skip to 0 minutes and 12 secondsMUNDY PHD: How do we learn and remember, and what factors can influence our learning? What role does reward and punishment play in shaping our behaviour? Hi. I'm Matthew Mundy, I'm the Director of Education for the School of Psychological Sciences at Monash University in Australia. In this course, you'll explore the psychology of learning. You'll find out about the influence of behaviourism and biological factors within the study of learning. You'll also investigate the basic principles of classical and operant conditioning, and because psychology doesn't operate within a vacuum, you'll have the chance to apply what you know to a real world situation. This introductory course is designed for everyone, regardless of experience or background.
