Industrial and organizational psychology is the application of psychological research and theory to human interaction.
This course will introduce you to the major concepts of and debates surrounding industrial and organizational psychology. Industrial and organizational psychology is the application of psychological research and theory to human interaction (both with other humans and with human factors, or machines and computers) in the workplace. The phrase “industrial and organizational psychology” (sometimes referred to as “I/O”) may be somewhat misleading, as the field deals less with actual organizations and/or industries and more with the people in these areas.

Please let me know how you are finding the course thus far and if you have any questions. Currently, I am developing some video materials to go with the main Saylor course at Saylor.Org. Should be ready in mid November!
Here is a little I/O trivia question. What do Aristotle and Anita Hill have in common?
