Course Description

This is the second part of the research practicum series. In combination with the ED X391 seminar, students submit weekly journal reflections related to understanding of topics/concepts as applied during their practicum experiences. Students engage with topics including ethical and legal issues in behavior analysis, behavior and response classes, advanced issues related to reinforcement and punishment, stimulus control, establishing operations, functional relations, generalization, teaching contingency-shaped behavior, antecedent- and consequence-based intervention procedures, incidental teaching, the multiple functions of language (i.e., mands, tacts, and intraverbals). Participants share effective training procedures and experiences and expertise they are developing in areas of behavior analytic procedures and concepts and learn more about others’ prospective behavioral research projects.
