Research training

Throughout the year, the PsychLab will run a series of workshops on recruitment using SONA, online surveys and online interviews. Workshop recordings and research materials will be uploaded to this page.

Lab taster sessions (20th October 2022)

The lab runs taster workshops on eye-tracking, psychophysiological recordings (skin conductance, heart-rate, EEG), virtual Reality in psychology experiments, Computer experiments, Online surveys and Qualitative research.

Each sessions is about 20 minutes long and gives you the opportunity to learn more about the equipment and methods specific to your research project. These are small-group workshops (up to 5 people) which means we’ll have plenty of time to answer questions specific to each project.

These workshops don’t provide comprehensive training. The workshops are meant for students who feel like they would benefit from an overview of the relevant equipment and have some pointers on research design. Workshops that will train you up on the use of SONA and the online survey tool will be run throughout January.
