    Learning and Cognition Handbook

    Video TranscriptPreview the document

    The primary goal of the Learning and Cognition Handbook assignment is to integrate concepts from the discipline of learning and cognitive psychology into a usable and professional guide that is designed for a specific audience based on your career goals. The purpose of this handbook is to share helpful strategies and apply what you have learned from the course to six major topics in the field. You will incorporate your findings from required sources and the relevant sources you researched in the Week 2 Discipline-Based Literature Review, as well as those from the Week 3 Assignment: Choosing Your Focus.

    To complete this assignment, you may utilize the Learning and Cognition Handbook templatePreview the document or create your own using the template as a guide. Your handbook should include the sections listed below, incorporating a minimum of one visual (e.g., table, figure, or image (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.) with a maximum of five visuals per section. Each image must be retrieved and cited based on current copyright laws. You may wish to use the Where to Get Free ImagesPreview the document guide for assistance with accessing freely available public domain and/or Creative Commons licensed images.

    Handbook Sections:

    Table of Contents
    List all sections and subsections included in the handbook with the applicable page numbers.

    Preface (100 to 150 words)
    Provide an overview of the handbook and its potential use by your chosen audience.

    Introduction to the Major Topics (200 to 300 words)
    Provide an introductory summary of the six topics listed below and discuss any careers in psychology specifically related to at least one of them:

    • Traditional learning theories: Operant and classical conditioning
    • Traditional learning theories: Behaviorism and social learning theory
    • Attention and memory
    • Decision-Making
    • Language acquisition
    • Organizational and lifelong learning

    Describe how one or more of these areas may be connected to your future career goals.

    Major Topics (1 to 2 pages for each major topic)
    Communicate the extent to which the six major topics of learning and cognition affect related sub-topics by synthesizing the course learning principles and/or theories. Consider how these sub-topics may be related to your future career goals. For instance, if you intend to become an applied behavior analyst, behaviorism and related technique for learning may be directly connected to your future role. For each major topic, apply basic research methods and skeptical inquiry to explain the theoretical perspectives and empirical research that substantiate the relationship between the topic and at least two related sub-topics. In your review, consider how these topic and sub-topics are directly connected to evaluations and interventions in psychology practice in various fields. Focus on the areas most related to your future area of practice, paying particular attention to how theories are examined in research studies. The following are some sub-topics to consider:

    • Comprehension
    • Operant and classical conditioning
    • Behaviorism
    • Social learning theory
    • Problem solving
    • Memory development/retention
    • Lifelong learning
    • Individual and group learning
    • Organizational learning
    • Mentorship
    • Apprenticeship models of learning
    • Effects of demographic differences (e.g., gender, socioeconomics, religious affiliation, race) on learning

    Although creative liberties are encouraged, all information incorporated should be supported and professionally presented through the consistent application of ethical principles and adherence to professional standards of learning and cognition psychology as applied to the chosen audience.

    Conclusion (200 to 300 words)
    Summarize the importance of the topics within the learning and cognition domain and their applicability within the psychology profession for the chosen audience.
