This is my gift to you: The Learning Module from my Animal Behavior Course. In my experience, people sometimes struggle with the concepts in Learning Theory. So here I present the concepts, in simplified form.
In this Module, you will learn the basics of Classical Conditioning and Operant Conditioning, and why the two kinds of learning are sometimes lumped together into the general category of Associative Learning. You will also learn the real difference between Reinforcement and Punishment, and how different reinforcement schedules influence an animal's motivation.
You will also find out about the details of the other kinds of Learning, such as Habituation, Latent Learning, Insight Learning, and Imprinting.
