Why this works for psychology

A conventional 100-level psychology course is difficult to teach in an engaging and effective way—it can be challenging to deliver demonstrations (e.g. McGurk effect), or help students visualize the function of the nervous system or the intricacies of sensation and perception.

Through interactive exercises, simulations and videos, Top Hat Intro Course for Psychology encourages students to retain, understand and apply the science of behavior in real life.
