Introductory psychology may be a student's first exposure to scientific methodology, or a step toward a career in the field. To meet learners where they are and then scaffold understanding, this book uses best practices from the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SOTL) in Psychology. This is reflected in the active learning What's Your Prediction theme, which facilitates a firsthand appreciation for psychological science. Through this lens, students assume the role of psychologist, investigating and mastering concepts. At the same time, they are immersed contextually in theories and research.
By understanding the research process, learners comprehend the field's evolution - from its historical underpinnings to modern research and its reflection in the world all around us.
The open-access Student Study Site makes it easy for students to maximize their study time, anywhere, anytime. It offers flashcards that strengthen understanding of key terms and concepts, as well as learning objectives that reinforce the most important material.
