For this week’s discussion I would like each of you to first discuss at least one instances in which you learned something through either classical or operant conditioning. It could be something from when you were a child in school, or something you may have learned recently. Please be sure to explain how the theories functioned in your learning experience (e.g. if you are talking about an operant conditioning situation what were the reinforcers or punishers, what was the schedule).
Next I would like each of you to explain how you could use one of these learning techniques in your own lives, whether it be at home, work, school, or in a personal relationship. An example could be if you had a child you could (and most likely would) use operant conditioning in toilet training. Again please included all the aspects of the theory in your post.
