A special educational edition of this Table Salt classic!
Thursday, June 8, 2017 — 7 pm
Course fee: $55
Kick off summer with a psychological splash as LearningLife dives deep into the science of the mind with an educational performance like no other!
The plot: Everyone knows that the future of education is online. Refusing to accept this notion, one professor makes a valiant (and uproarious) effort to stem the rising tide by teaching an entire semester of Psych 101 in just 90 minutes. From Freud, Harlow, and Milgram to Piaget, Jung, and Skinner — from the neural impulse and operant conditioning to Maslow’s hierarchy of needs — it’s educational entertainment at its mind-blowing best!
And yes, there will be a test — in fact, two: a midterm and a final exam. But don’t let that stir your unconscious fears. Move away from that computer and come boost your conative function. It’s time for some classical conditioning! (Ding! Ding!)
Recommended text: The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (Kidding!)
