Brief Biographical Sketch:

I have known for many years that I want to be a teacher. I love working with kids and hearing their ideas, and I have been fortunate to have the chance to do so very often in the past few years. This year I have also had the opportunity to do research related to infants and their abilities, which I had the chance to present at Splash.

Are babies born as blank slates? How do humans learn languages? Does watching violent television lead children to become more aggressive? In this course, we'll have a chance to take a look at these questions and many, many more! If you've ever found yourself wondering just how you came to be the person that you are today, then this class is the one for you. And even if you've never stopped to think about that type of question, this course should also be great for you! Be prepared to discuss some absolutely fascinating topics!

S2205: The Amazing Abilities of Infants in Splash Fall 16 (Nov. 05, 2016)
Because infants cannot talk, it seems nearly impossible to understand their thinking. However, researchers have uncovered many key aspects of babies, including their built-in mechanisms for learning certain things, their moral sense (yes, they have one!) and much, much more. If you're interested in learning about key research findings related to infants, and if you want to see some truly amazing videos featuring babies, this class will be great for you.
