Social Psychology on Coursera
« on: August 06, 2013, 03:38:06 pm »
I don't know if anyone else here takes classes on Coursera (technically this will be my first) but I've signed up for a Social Psychology class through Wesleyan University and I thought it might interest other Cauldronites. :)

Welcome! This course offers an introduction to classic and contemporary research in social psychology—the scientific study of how people think about, influence, and relate to one another.

The goal is to provide you with psychological insights and information that you can use to improve your life, relationships, and work. Instead of presenting a comprehensive overview of social psychology, the course will focus on surprising, entertaining, and intriguing research findings that are easy to apply in daily life.

And a weekly description of the course:
Week 1: Social Perceptions and Misperceptions
Week 2: The Psychology of Self-Presentation and Persuasion
Week 3: Obedience, Conformity, and Deindividuation
Week 4: Group Behavior: The Good, Bad, and Ugly
Week 5: Conflict, Peacemaking, and Intervention
Week 6: A Happy Ending: Romance, Empathy, and Life Satisfaction

Class starts on the 12th, if anyone is interested!
