effects in memory, and psychology in general, are presented as
universal, applying to everyone at all times and in all places. However,
there are important differences among individuals in how they process
and recall information. For instance, demographic differences, such as
age, gender, and culture of origin, may have an impact on how we
remember; other dimensions of individual difference may be intelligence,
creativity, and motivation. Some of these differences are related to
biology, others are related to the social environment, and some
differences are related to both.
For this assignment, you will
research how one of these variables can change how people experience a
learning situation—for example, learning a foreign language, remembering
the names of people at a party, or studying for a biology exam or other
academic test. Think how this dimension could explain the differences
between your own experiences and those of others you know. Your
assignment should include the following:
- Describe a learning
context of interest related to cognitive psychology, such as learning a
foreign language, studying for an exam, or remembering names at a party.
Feel free to use an example from one of the activities in the course.
the types of memory and learning involved and the memory and learning
problems involved (for instance, problems with memory such as
forgetting, amnesia, and the tip-of-the-tongue effect).
- Write a
case study where two people learn and experience a learning situation
differently. Note that you can contrast circumstances involving memory
deficits and also circumstances of exceptional performance.
at least three peer-reviewed research articles that help you understand
individual learning differences. In other words, how could the result
change due to individual differences, such as age, gender, or culture?
- Summarize these sources.
- Apply the scholarship you have found to explain how the individuals in your case study learn and remember differently.
- Describe the methods and measures used in research that seek to understand individual learning differences.
how you would apply the knowledge you have gained regarding individual
differences, learning, and memory in your personal or professional life.
