Hoch, Hannah
[PSYC BC1105] Psychology of Learning (w/ or w/o lab)

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Take this course with Hannah Hoch!! She is great!! I agree with the other reviews in that the subject inherently is a bit dry (especially if you are not a psych major)-- but, if you have to take this course, she went out of her way to make it fun, interesting and easily understandable (and succeeded!). I am a psych major and was pushing off this class-- but I am SO happy I waited and took it with her-- I learned a lot, and she is just so passionate about what she does (and sooo sweet) that she made the class extremely enjoyable! (the class also ended up being invaluable for the psych GREs and later psych classes, so take it if you would need).

Workload:

Hannah Hoch is extremely approachable and available almost 24/7 via email. She is soo helpful with any questions and provides a review sheet for each midterm (2 and a final). You dont need to read the book (she has great, detailed slides)- just follow the review sheet and you will be absolutely fine! The final was basically non-cumulative because the only "old" info was taken exactly from a review sheet, which only highlighted the most important information.
