Noteworthy Activity #84D
Principles of Behavior, 8e: Meet & Greet With the Authors
Saturday, May 29, 2021
1:00 PM–2:00 PM
RICHARD W. MALOTT (Western Michigan University), KELLY KOHLER (Western Michigan University)

Our 8th edition just came out on April 1, 2021, and we’re eager to chat with you about it. To answer questions like, “Why’s this the world’s greatest intro to behavior analysis?” Like, “Is it just rats and pigeons or DD or autism?” Like, “Why’s it so weird?” “Is it really as rigorous as you think it is?” “Is it a fun read?” “Is it an easy read?” “Is it really an excellent choice for both college freshmen and first-year grad students?” “Is it really responsible for seducing a lot of innocent students into the field of behavior analysis?”

Oh yes, and we might also chat about our fantasy of providing continuous, online support and about any corrections you recommend or problems you see, because we hope to make whatever adjustments are helpful online, as we probably can’t re-edit the book, until the 9th edition.

This isn’t a talk, but rather an informal question, and hopefully answer, session.
