CogWare™ Advanced Adaptive Courseware from CogBooks
This Adaptive Courseware explores the ecological and evolutionary causes of selfishness and cooperation in human societies. Students apply biological models to predict patterns of behavior in human populations and evaluate these models with empirical data. Students will develop new scientific and philosophical perspectives on human behavior by integrating ideas from complementary disciplines, including biology, psychology, anthropology, criminology, sociology and philosophy.
Because the course is built on CogBooks’ Advanced Adaptive technology, it instantly helps you teach more effectively and provide every student with the individual support they need.
Your students will find the experience miles ahead of a static textbook. And because our smart instructor tools give you deep insights into each individual student, you’ll find you can use your valuable time much more productively.
“When they come to class, we have the ability to check where they have questions, so only cover those points instead of going for the whole curriculum.”
