Learning and cognition is a broad discipline.

You may choose the area that is of most interest to you:
Operant and classical conditioning
The effects of modeling on learning
The cognitive revolution
The effects of self-efficacy on learning
In your analysis of each topic,
First, explain the theoretical perspectives and empirical research that are pertinent to the field of learning and cognition.
Define key terms and provide examples of how modern research shows the theories in action.
Following this analysis, identify at least one ethical dilemma posed by the research methods themselves OR by how the theories are applied in real life.
Propose at least one solution to that ethical dilemma by applying APA ethical principles to the evaluation of each theoretical approach.
Support your statements with evidence from your selected articles, using accurate APA 7th edition citations.
Important: As you are writing this paper it is please note, that as a graduate student, your writing should be more developed than it was as an undergraduate. Be sure to overtly cite all information that would not be known as common knowledge in the world. Be sure to paraphrase (and cite) much more frequently than using quotations. Avoid using a large number of quotes and avoid any quotation over 40 words in length. Be sure to be clear and concise in your reporting of the research.
