Syllabus:

This course combines lectures from Research Methods in Psychology (PSYCHOL1004) with a specialised set of Case-Based Learning (CBL) activities. The focus is on students learning how to do research in psychology, with an emphasis on student-centred activities and problem solving to introduce basic principles. Students will learn about such key concepts as the scientific method; operationalizing constructs; independent and dependent variables; data types and ways of measurement; confounding variables; experimental and non-experimental design; questionnaire construction; developing and testing hypotheses; descriptive statistics and describing data graphically; and the ethics of research. Case-based Learning will extend this by providing BPsycSc students with an opportunity to develop analytic thinking and decision making skills for applied, real-life problems.
