Psychological Research Skills (PSYL11065).

I saved my first Psychological Research Skills lecture as a powerpoint with audio recording: this makes it much smaller and also easy to navigate. To view these in the online powerpoint viewer, click the "present" button (little projector screen icon) in the top right of the viewer, and you should get an audio and slide lecture, which plays full screen, is easy to navigate (left right arrow to advance go back in the slides with synched audio).

Based on feedback, I'm going to save the week 5 lecture as a 1-GB or so movie with sound track.

Week 1 Lecture Fundamentals of Scientific Research.

* 10 minute intro + "pre homework". This brief introduction gives us 10 minutes to think about how you currently think about and use science.
* Main lecture 1. This is the full introductory lecture, about 2hours.
* Let me know if there are any problems accessing or viewing the slides email||
* We had a Teams video meeting the following meeting for a couple of hours of discussion.

Week 5: The replication crisis

  • First: Watch this youtube video of a BBC science program showing how we are clearing and strongly influenced by unconscious word-based prompts.
  • The main replication lecture (2 hours)]
  • mp4 version This is on Microsoft's sharepoint at present - you might need to wait a few minutes for the movie to start playing… Not a great interface, sorry.
