Über den Autor (2015)

Joseph J. Pear, a professor of psychology at the University of Manitoba, received his B.S. and M.A. degrees from the University of Maryland and his Ph.D. from the Ohio State University. A fellow of Division 6 (Behavioral Neuroscience and Comparative Psychology) and Division 25 (Behavior Analysis) of the American Psychological Association, Pear has done both basic and applied research. Most recently, he developed Computer-Aided Personal System of Instruction (CAPSI), an instructional program based on the Keller Plan. CAPSI is an award winning program that is being used to teach a number of courses at University of Manitoba and at several other universities in Canada and the United States. It is also a research tool that Pear and his graduate students use to research the teaching and learning dimensions of university education. Pear has done basic research with pigeons and is currently doing research on fish, using a tracking system that he developed. In addition to the current book, Pear has written two previous books: "Behavior Modification: What It Is and How to Do It" (with Garry Martin) and "The Science of Learning.
