Positive reinforcement training is about setting up for success and making sure desired behaviors are followed by reinforcers, which strengthen the behavior in the future. In this course you get to join the Swedish duo Eva and Emelie as they zoom in on the small but important details that make up a training session, from one reward to the next. What happens right after each reward? What happens within your reward procedure? And why does it matter?
In “Seamlessness – from one reward to the next” you will learn learn how to work deliberately with small but significant details, paying attention to all the parts of the training loop and using them to create seamless training sessions. The material in this course will help you develop your own training sessions further. Your planning will get better, your training will become smoother, and both you and your learner will enjoy the process even more than before!
This course will cover
This is a 6 week self-study course. New lessons will be presented each week, and you will have continued access to the material after the course finishes.
We have so much material we wish to share with you on this topic – in this course, we put it together in a comprehensive yet extensive form. Our goal is to provide you with a lot of information and ideas from which you can extrapolate the aspects you currently wish to work with in your own training.
The course is auditors only, allowing you to digest the material at your own pace and consider how it relates to your own training. We are planning for a follow-up course with practical training and feedback from us, we just wish to have everyone on the same page first… There are so many aspects to consider – it literally takes us six weeks to get from one reward to the next!
Week 1: A great training session, from one reward to the next
Week 2: From the end of a reward to criteria being met
Week 3: The reward procedure
Week 4: Add-ons to the loop: Criteria not met (a.k.a. mistakes) and chains & sequences
Week 5: End of reward as starting point – in depth
Week 6: Summarizing seamlessness
