I have in the past mentioned how social psychology needs to be leveraged upon and how the guys in the marketing department are way ahead of us in implementing the wealth of knowledge that social psychology/behavioral economics has to offer.
Coursera once again comes to the rescue by partnering with Wesleyan University to offer a course in Social Psychology by Professor Scott Plous. I have in the past raved about Dan Ariely’s course here and here. These two courses do have quite a bit in common yet there is plenty to learn.
Check out Professor Plous’s course here:
Since this is my blog and I am free to state opinions; I liked the one by Dan Ariely more, but what the hell, this is good too.
Go ahead and enroll.
