LLP is 8 weeks long, including a final week for tying up loose ends. The course will be taught using a closed email lists for group discussion and for sending lecture attachments and sharing photos. Only registered participants will have access to the email and lecture list associated with this course. Each week, a 2,000-3,000 word lecture is posted to the list. The lectures include homework assignments for you to complete and turn into the list for feedback and revision. After a lecture is posted, the participants are encouraged to ask questions, share thoughts and apply the strategies introduced in the lecture. The class typically requires 4-6 hours weekly. There is absolutely no lurking allowed as this is a hands-on course.
* I am excited to announce that starting this year Lee McGuire, my teaching partner since 2004, will take over as lead instructor for LLP. I will continue to work in the background, advising, revising lectures and working on new goals to advance the application of the science of behavior and learning.
Associated with this course is an email list called Parrot Behavior Analysis Solutions (PBAS). You are welcome to join that work group to further your experience with the material and to help others learn it as well. It is an open list where LLP students as well as others who have not taken LLP can work on behavior solutions together. Go to the following site http://groups.yahoo.com/groups/ParrotBAS/join for more information and to sign up to join the PBAS list.
Once you are subscribed to the list, please read the List Procol and Welcome letters in the Files folder before posting. This is not a chat list and it follows a particular problem solving protocol.
