What are we going to learn initially and how can we use this knowledge in future? We will be looking at developmental psychology as background knowledge relevant to any individual we wish to understand better: How do children with their individual biological traits such as temperament develop within the social psychological framework of family or home care situation. What resulting motivational state is the individual likely to have towards (un)interesting tasks on the basis of this life history? And what can we do with this knowledge (pedagogical psychology)? (Course language is obviously English)
The course is part of admission "biw220 - Psychologische Grundlagen WiSe20/21".
