Educational Philosophy: Interactiveness based on lectures, readings, quizzes, dialogues, examinations, internet, videos, web sites and writings. Students are encouraged to participate in all class discussion to explore ideas, issues and contradictions.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
The purpose of the literature review is for students to research a topic relevant to social psychology, formulate a research question, and conduct a literature review to address their target question. A literature review is not simply a report or an annotated bibliography; a literature review is a summary of the available information on a specific topic organized by common themes, trends or findings.
