PSY8020 Advanced Research Techniques

Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Sciences
School or Department : Psychology


Pre-requisite: PSY8010


Students will be introduced to a number of techniques. The course also revises and builds upon relevant previous course material. Students will learn to think about research designs and research hypotheses in a more critical, intuitive and constructive way. These techniques are also applied to examples that students may face as a part of their professional career. The course is broken into 3 residential workshops - each one runs for 2 days. The material covered is assessed in 2 assignments of equal weighting. The Examiner may choose to break either or both assessment pieces into multiple smaller assessment items, if they believe this will aid student learning. Final details of each assessment item will be discussing in the first workshop.
