...The Cognitive Perspective Definitions of cognitive psychology: “Stresses the role of mental processes in understanding behaviour” “Study of how people acquire, store, and use information” “Science of information flow through people” The words ‘cognition’ and ‘cognitive’ refer to ideas, thoughts, knowledge and beliefs that people have. Cognitive processes are concerned with thinking, memory, understanding language, and perceiving and solving problems. Social cognition is about understanding what other people are thinking or feeling. Cognitive psychology is difficult to define – try answering the question ‘what is thought?’ Schemas Humans try to make sense of the world, try to understand it, so we can function in it. These are our schemas, and can often be inaccurate. Define schema on page 362: What could happen if you have an inaccurate schema about your body weight? About how much people like you? About how healthy smoking is? Task: You have arrived at a restaurant. List all the things you would expect to happen during your visit. This list is your schema about what to do at a restaurant. A set of rules. What did Bower (1979) find? When new situations arise we can employ our learned schemata to try to understand the situation. For example, the first time you visited a fast food restaurant you had to adapt your restaurant schema – no knives and forks etc. We change and develop our schema through two......

...Omar Hassan Principles of Management Professor Joe MArkert October 10, 2012 In the article “Objectives of an Organization” one can learn that a business or organization’s vision and mission plays a very important role in maintaining a consistently successful business. Workers of an organization and just people in general tend to lose track towards the path to success without a vision providing strategies for the future of a company. An organization that lacks this ingredient is likely to fail in achieving its goal. Therefore, It is very essential that the leader of an organization sets a well defined and reachable goal for which an organization could work towards achieving. With this being said, I feel that CEO’s/leaders truly have a very vital role in terms of setting the vision and mission for the organization ultimately building it into a stronger one. It doesn't just take any highly ranked manager to convey the vision/mission to the employees, but one that is cautious, aware, and very well understands the job enough to be able to clearly communicate to the employees so that they can appropriately work their part seriously. This technique can also help managers to guide worker’s behaviors. Relatively, I believe that setting such motivational and propelling guidance such as vision and mission to influence employees behaviors is crucial when trying to maintain a positive working atmosphere because it will drive workers into providing outstanding results. Thus, it......

...Discuss the impact of chronic medical conditions on adolescents (12-18yo) and identify ways of promoting resilience or positive development (1300 min-1500 max words). A chronic or long-term illness results in major physical and psychological changes to the individual. The illness requires them to adjust to the burdens of the therapy implicated to treat the condition. There are multiple emotional, cognitive, motivational and behavioral factors that are stressed during the ongoing illness that hinders the individuals ability to develop and function healthily within Sigmund Freuds psychodynamic structure. Additional theories according to B.F Skinner, Mccrae & Costa and Carl Rogers compliment the idea that chronic illness will impact the individual’s ability to keep a positive self-esteem and develop socially and autonomously through adolescents. We will look into the specific factors that are impacted by chronic illness’, how exactly they relate to the responses of adolescent individual, how it affects their relationships with families and medical staff, and identify ways in which we can promote positive development despite the burden of a wide range of chronic illness’. For Adolescents and young adults, gaining autonomy is essential which is imposed while enduring management of a chronic illness. Obviously with illness’ such as cancer, Sickle cell disease, Cystic Fibrosis and asthma; the vulnerability involved with daily activities directly affect ones confidence in......

Objectives Social responsibility - using resources more efficiently Curriculum Topics • Aims and objectives • SMART objectives • Strategy • Tactics Images supplied by Vismedia Introduction The challenge facing business and society in the 21st century is how to use resources more efficiently. Every business large or small needs to consider carefully: 1. how to reduce its use of energy 2. how to minimise waste. The central economic problem is how to match finite resources with unlimited wants. With the demand for resources rising as the world economy grows this is becoming more of a challenge. Leading global companies like Anglo American strive to find new solutions to this problem every day. Anglo American is one of the world’s largest mining companies. Its portfolio of mining businesses spans precious metals and minerals – in which it is a global leader in platinum and diamonds, base metals (copper and nickel) and bulk commodities (iron ore, metallurgical coal and thermal coal). The company’s mining operations and extensive pipeline of growth projects are located in southern Africa, South America, Australia, North America and Asia. The purpose of the organisation is set out in a mission statement. In 2008 there was a downturn in world economic activity. This resulted from a loss of confidence in the world financial system. The downturn led to a steep fall in commodity prices such as coal, copper and platinum. By late 2009 these prices started to......

Cognitive Psychology

...Cognitive Psychology Cognitive psychology studies our mental processes or cognitions. These mental processes that cognitive psychologists focus on include memory, perception, thinking and language. The main concern of cognitive psychology is how information received from our senses is processed by the brain and how this processing directs how we behave. Strengths of COGNITIVE approach Example from Core Study 1 High levels of control in laboratory conditions Baron-Cohen they were able to select participants with the desired characteristics and maintain a standard procedure. By controlling variables, cause and effect can be established, in this case the effect that autism and AS have on theory on mind skills 2 May be able to help those with cognitive problems and may lead to practical applications for teaching/treatment For example the study by Loftus and palmer offers us an insight into the factors that can affect the reliability of eyewitness testimony, in particular the use of leading questions in interviews which can distort a witness’s memory of an event. This could prove vital for police questioning techniques. 3 Increases our understanding of cognitive abilities For example, Baron-Cohen’s study, he has demonstrated how autistic people are not able to conceive of what other people are feeling as easily as non-autistic people i.e. not capable of ‘mind reading’. This is shown because the autistic/AS participants scored less well on the eye task than the non-autistic......

...Project title: Project Nature: Environment Objective: The purpose of this project is based from what one of the barangays that we had talked to needed and that is cleaning materials like for example, trash bins. We chose Barangay Teresa as a community to help since we also noticed that there are only few trash bins around the area (especially along the street way to the main entrance gate of our campus) which is one source why the surroundings are so messy. We also would like to include having a seminar about what we had learned on our topic last CWTS 1 which is proper waste disposal. Target/Beneficiaries: Residents of Barangay Teresa ages 9 to 40 years old Project Location: Barangay Teresa, Sta. Mesa, Manila Initiating section: BSCoE 1-4 Over-all in charge: CERBITO, JOLESSA 0.

Without understanding human behaviour it is very difficult to work in an organisation. In order to understand human behaviour let us see how the perception of human being has changed from time to time. All organisations are composed of individuals, with different personality, attitudes, values, perception, motives, aspirations and abilities. The main reason to understand behaviour is that individuals are different. No two individuals are similar. In the early studies, theories of organisation and management treated people as though they were the same; scientific management was based on the similarities among workers, not the......

...time, or place (Sickels,1868). This allows for people to describe in detail what they see, whether it is a person, place, or thing. Second, is the sense of hearing. Hearing is the sense by which we distinguish sounds to allow us to hear conversations between individuals, music that is playing, and the sounds of everyday life (Sickels,1868). Both of which play a role when defining the main characteristics of objectivity, which goes unnoticed in everyday life. Objectivity is an important concept and practice that is used throughout most professions around the country. However it is most often used in the criminal justice profession. “More often than not, criminal justice professionals are writing reports and findings based on facts. Objective writing means that you are writing only what you observed as factual. When writing reports based on facts, it's important to exclude personal feelings or opinions on the issue. For example, if a police officer or probation officer is writing an incident report, they would not include their personal opinion on the subject's behavior” (Rasmussen,2014). It is not professional or ethical to include personal judgments or biases within an official report. In some cases, there may be a need to include a recommendation based on facts. When this is necessary, a professional opinion can be drawn, but only based on facts” (Rasmussen,2014). It is important in the criminal justice profession to use objectivity reporting because they want real......

Cognitive Learning Objectives

...articulating the learning objectives is directly related to achieving the desired learning outcomes. Additionally, learning objectives can be derived from a knowledge/skill gap identified in a front-end needs analysis. Consequently, the goal of creating learning objectives is to provide a means of clarifying the purpose of instruction to ensure the training/education is successful and the objectives are achieved. Clearly identifying learning objectives improves the communication between the instructor and the learner for a given course/learning module so the student knows precisely what is expected of him/her. When the objectives of a course have been clearly identified and presented in an orderly progression, the desired learning outcomes will be attained. They may also assist in the choice of the instructional delivery method(s) and instructional strategies when designing a learning activity, as well as establishing criteria for student performance when assessing student learning outcomes (Dick, Carey, & Carey, 2005). “When clearly defined objectives are lacking, there is no sound basis for the selection or designing of instructional materials, instructional strategies, or assessments” (Mager,1999) . “A properly written objective tells you what specific knowledge, skill, or attitude is desired and what method of instruction and criteria for learner achievement are required” (Lohr, n.d., pp 7). A learning objective (also referred to as instructional......

...Chapter 3 Objectives 1. Describe receptors and ligand. Receptors are cell-associated proteins located at the surface that bind to ligand. The binding of a receptor and ligand induce changes in the receptor, which act to transmitted the ligand-binding signal into the interior of the cell and alter cellular functions such as proliferation, cell death, cell reproduction. 2. Explain the signal transduction pathway and their elements. Signal transduction pathway is the route by which ligand-receptor interaction is translated into biochemical change inside the cell. This process is initiated by the binding interaction of complementary ligand and receptor during sufficient time and strength that bring a biochemical change in the receptor. The upstream components consist of elements closest to the receptor. The downstream components are closest to the effector molecule. 3. Describe Immuno-receptor Tyrosine Activation Motif (ITAM) and list some of the molecules associated with B- and T- cell antigen receptors. The ITAM is a pair of long cytoplasmic tail that is found on signaling proteins within the immune system. It contains tyrosine that is phosphorylated after signal transduction of associated receptors. The phosphorylation of ITAM facilitated the initiation of signaling cascade. Other molecules associated with B and T cell antigen receptors are CD19 /CD20 on B cells that bind to complement molecules attached to antigens and CD4 and CD8 on T cells that bind...

Crows Nest, New South Wales. Allen & Unwin. 1. p. 229 (Additive - Objective # 2) These goals are possible only where individuality is an asset, where belonging and acceptance are supreme, where there are opportunities to explore and gain self-understanding, where there is trust, dignity and security and where self-confidence, self-reliance, originality, responsibility and independence are encouraged. It is only in this sort of learning that a person is open to experience and therefore capable of maximal utilisation of their potentialities and environmental opportunities for self-development, learning how to learn and developing the curiosity, enjoyment and intrinsic satisfaction from learning that will draw them back again and again to lifelong learning. 2. p. 231 (Variant - Objective # 2) The learner has to adjust themselves to an established curriculum and teaching method. As self-direction and self-responsibility are not encouraged, the growing maturity of young people creates a gap between the need and ability to be self-directing and the opportunity to do so. Hence the tension, resentment and even rebellion that is common in secondary schools today. The child's experience is not counted of worth. Learners only learn what is in the syllabus or what they must pass...

Cognitive Psychology

...Cognitive Psychology By Kelli Halford PSY/360 April 30, 2012 Bonnie Johnson Introduction Cognitive psychology is commonly compared to behaviorism. This is because of the contrast of the perspectives (Willingham, 2007). Still behaviorism does not address the human mental processes .cognitive psychology tries to make a description of these characteristic of humankind. Another perspective in psychology is the cognitive psychology's status that is based in experiments, and the scientific method (Willingham, 2007). Cognitive psychology’s objective is to find out how humans thoughts can create a reaction (Eysenck, 2004, Willingham, 2007). Defining Cognitive Psychology Cognitive Psychology is a psychological view that addresses mental processes. This includes thinking, remembering, and problem solving. It also involves perceiving, speaking, and believing. This form of psychology seeks to find the purpose of behavior by characteristics that a human cannot see (Cacioppo, 2002). This implicates the human brain function, and structure (Willingham, 2007). Four Key Milestones There are four vital developments in cognitive psychology. These are known as neuroscience, artificial intelligence, the fall of behaviorism, and the information process. These key milestones played a crucial role in cognitive psychology. First is the study of the human mind through abstract concepts to show definite links among brain structure, and function. This is better known as neuroscience......

Accounting Information Systems: Course Objectives, Description, Topics, and Assignments

...ACCOUNTING INFORMATION SYSTEMS: COURSE OBJECTIVES, DESCRIPTION, TOPICS, AND ASSIGNMENTS ACCT-5600 DR. NICOLAOU Fall 2010 COURSE STRUCTURE In the modern world, the majority of accounting entries occur electronically. Accountants and auditors store information in databases, managed by enterprise systems that have a set of controls to ensure that transactions and record keeping happen as expected. E-business Web sites handle transactions automatically, with the accounting data going directly into the necessary databases. The concept of a paper trail has become a bit of a misnomer; today, because of accounting information systems, there is often no paper involved at all; however, it is important to establish the flow the data in different areas of the organization, or audit trail, so as to properly exercise internal controls. AISs help in this purpose. At the outset of this course, you will learn the basics of accounting information systems and business processes. Next, you will learn about database management systems, and the design of various database models. Finally, you will learn about how to use internal controls effectively for risk management, as well as the requirements for business reporting. After completing this course, you should not only have a clear idea of how accounting information systems work, but you should also be prepared to design and configure them to meet the record-keeping and risk management requirements of the organization.
