Psychology students had the opportunity to take part in a workshop on chimp language acquisition and social behaviour. They had a thoroughly enjoyable day at Chester Zoo. The educational workshop allowed the students to revisit areas of Psychology such as operant and classical conditioning and link it to animal learning and behaviour. The workshop leader shared numerous interesting stories about the behaviour or the Chimps at the zoo and aloud us to learn more about their social structure and the evolution of specific behaviours. We even got the chance to watch some of this for ourselves when exploring the Zoo. Now the students have a deeper understanding of animal behaviour that can be embedded into their current knowledge, so it was a very worthwhile day.
