Aim of the course is to deepen, broaden, and apply students’ knowledge

of methodology used in social cognition research. We will talk about

methodological problems, solutions to these problems, and about newest

approaches to planning and reporting empirical research. During the

course students will design their own study. On the example of this study

they will also learn how to give, receive, and respond to scientific

feedback. We will also train communicating research to others in a clear

manner.

There will be a reading and a quiz or a small homework for most of the

classes. The aim of the quizzes and small homeworks is to make students

come prepared to the class and to work regularly. The readings and class

discussion should also prepare them to design and describe their own

study in social cognition in a group-work task. During class, there will be a

lot of time for discussions and critical thinking. Students will also get close

supervision and a lot of feedback on their work.

After the course, students should be comfortable with designing a study

and describing its methodology in detail even before conducting the

study. Students should also feel acquainted with the newest

methodological standards of conducting and publishing research in social

cognition (and beyond).

Metody i kryteria oceniania: (tylko po angielsku)

Student performance will be assessed based on: activity during the class,

quizzes, home works, search and summaries of articles, and presentation

of a small group project.

Quizzes will be based on the general understanding of the readings. They

are aimed at motivating students to read before the class and to do it

attentively.

Participation assessment (active/not-active) will be based on

contributions to class discussions and to other class activities. It will be

assessed by the students (for other students) and by the lecturer. The

sum of these assessments will be taken.

% of the grade:

- Active participation, engagement (13%)

- Quizzes (25% = 5 x 5%) – classes: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

- Little homeworks (15% = 3 x 5%) – classes: 4, 11, 14

- Middle homeworks (30% = 3 x 10%) – classes: 7, 8, 13

- Own research plan (17%, group work) – class 10

Attendance rules

Students may have maximum 2 absences (regardless if excused or

unexcused). Two additional absences are permitted only with formal

excuse. If more than 2 classes are missed students will be asked to do an

additional task related to the class that they missed. Missing more than 4

classes results in course failure.

Pełny opis: (tylko po angielsku)

Aim of the course is to apply the theoretical knowledge and understanding of social cognition that the students have acquired during the lecture and seminar and deepen students’ knowledge and skills in experimental psychology. Through lecturer’s introductions, readings, and exercises, students will to deepen and broaden their knowledge of experimental methods.

There will be a reading for most of the classes, but the readings are rather short and the handbook is well-written. There will be several homeworks, but again, they will be small and short. Their aim is to make you work regularly and to be well prepared to plan, conduct, analyze, interpret, and communicate your research.

We will concentrate on quantitative methods, but mixed methods approach will also be introduced, and for those who want, mixing qualitative with quantitative methods will be possible and encouraged. We will apply our methodological skills to design, conduct, analyze, report, and present a study in social cognition. As the course group will be small, students will get close supervision and a lot of feedback regarding their work. There will be time for discussions, critical thinking, and creativity.

After the course you should be comfortable with conducting, reading, and discussing experimental research. You will also understand better and deeper the methods and standards of scientific research, as well as rationale for using them and rationale for a well-justified exceptions from them.
