VIEW PROJECT


Professor Weber uses this online tool in the Psychology: Thinking and Decision Making course to encourage students to experiment with and analyze two different information processing systems in human decision making: experiential learning versus analytic learning. Students view the modules and submit an online survey that evaluates their retention of the material as well as any related behavioral intentions and attitudes they may have formed after viewing the information. For the pilot launched in the Fall 2006 semester, the tool provided an analytic presentation of information about glacial retreat on Mount Kilimanjaro as well as a presentation of the same information in an experiential format.
