10 Day Guided Tours

February 1, 2009

Think of yourself as being on holiday and me as your tour guide. I’ve taken several areas of psychology and made “tours” of them.

Each tour is divided into 10 “days.” Each day is particular topic. Think of it as taking a 10 week course and we meet only once a week (10 days).

I’ve been a professor for many years. So I made each tour a university-level course in psychology…but more fun. There are no grades. I provide quizzes, tests and pretests for your charting your own progress but they are only for your information.

If there is an area of psychology you’d like me to cover, let me know. I’ll see what I can do.




Tour of General Psychology

January 29, 2009

Take a tour of psychology. This 10-Day Guided Tour surveys the entire field. You’ll learn about personality, learning, memory, perception, and emotion. We’ll take excursions into philosophy, physiology and neuroscience. And we’ll spend a “day” exploring developmental, social and abnormal psychology.


Tour of Statistics

February 5, 2008

If you are taking statistics, or want an overview or review of its principles, I’ve created a 10-Day Guided Tour just for you. This tour covers everything you need to know to master a university-level course in introductory statistics.

There are audio files, videos, simulations and lost of practice problems. And there is a step by step tour of all of the principles of statistics, and how to apply them to your research. 


Tour of Personality

February 5, 2008

 Personality is the study of who we are. It’s composed of many theories about how and why we behave as we do. Before we create our own theory of personality, it’s wise to see what others have said on the subject.

The theories are presented in semi-chronological order. But you’ll soon discover that ideas are not limited to one period of time. They pop up, are popular for a while, subside and vanish. But these same ideas will pop up again years, decades or centuries later.

After you’ve read about other views of personality, consider writing your own. It is really helpful to put your thinking into words. And quite challenging. Since I wouldn’t ask you to do something I wouldn’t do myself, I’ve included my theory of personality. Use it as a model of what to include but not necessarily what to believe.
