The Nova Scotia College of Agriculture has developed an on-line course in Positive Reinforcement Operant Conditioning that will be launched in a few months - possible early next year.
I have just been accepted to be a beta tester (a person who works through the course and offers commentary to help improve it before it is launched.) This is very exciting and I am looking forward to joining others for the intensive course work, lasting for 5 weeks and beginning at the end of this month.
The content and comments have to be kept confidential for now, so I won't be able to update this blog as I go, but I'm sure I will learn so much. What I can say is that I have to choose 1 animal to work with throughout the sessions and I have chosen Siog as she is the easiest to separate from the trio without stressing Deenah.
And I know I will improve at taking video as that is a requirement also. We are expected to complete about 60 hours of course work!
