Do you want your students to experience psychology or just take a psychology course for the sake of it? Best-selling author, Dr. Laura King’s Experience Psychology (3rd Edition) is a complete learning system that empowers college students to critically, personally, and actively experience the impact of psychology in their daily lives. Experience Psychology 3e is about, well, experiences of our own behaviors; in school and at work; our relationships at home and in our communities, and our interactions in different learning environments. Grounded in meaningful real-world contexts, Experience Psychology 3e (PDF) contains contemporary examples, personalized author notes, and applied exercises speak directly to the psychology students, allowing them to engage with psychology and to learn verbally, visually, and experimentally by reading, watching, observing, and doing. With the Experience Psychology 3rd edition etextbook learning system, students do not just study psychology but actively experience it.

  • Experience a Personalized Approach: How many students think they know everything about introductory psychology but struggle on the first exam? Throughout Experience Psychology 3e, students find a wealth of personal pedagogical research directly from Dr. Laura King to guide their understanding and stimulate their interest as they study and read. Some of these helpful notes highlight crucial terms and concepts; others prompt college students to think critically about the complexities of the issues; other notes encourage college students to apply what they have learned to their prior reading or to a new situation. These mini-conversations between students studying psychology and the author help develop analytical skills for those college students to carry and apply well beyond their course.
  • Experience an Emphasis on Critical Thinking: Experience Psychology stimulates critical reflection and analysis. Challenge Your Thinking sidebar features involve students in debates relevant to findings from contemporary psychological research. Thought-provoking questions encourage examination of the evidence on both sides of a debate or issue. Showcasing studies in different areas of psychological research that are being conducted on the same topic, the Intersections shed light on the links between, and the reciprocal influences of, this exciting work, and they raise provocative questions for student reflection and class discussion.
  • Experience an Emphasis on Active Engagement: With the new Experience It! feature, psych. students can use their smart devices to practice and master key concepts whenever and wherever they choose. By snapping easily located QR codes, college students gain access to videos, Concept Clips, and related news articles, for a rich, highly portable, and immersive experience that powerfully reinforces the chapter text.

Through Do It!, a series of brief, reoccurring sidebar activities linked to the textbook reading, students get an opportunity to test their assumptions and learn through hands-on exploration and discovery. Reinforcing that the science of psychology requires active participation, Do It! selections include, for example, an exercise on conducting an informal survey to observe and classify behaviors in a public setting, as well as an activity guiding students on how to research. Such exercises provide students with a vibrant and involving experience that gets them thinking as psychologists do.
