Seifried, Eva; Eckert, Christine; Spinath, Birgit – Teaching of Psychology, 2018
The effects of offering and seizing optional learning opportunities rarely have been investigated. Thus, university instructors have no basis on which to decide whether offering optional learning opportunities to their students would be worth the effort and which students would seize and benefit from them. To target these questions, we designed a…

Burgoyne, Stephanie; Eaton, Judy – Teaching of Psychology, 2018

However, not all courses lend themselves to a fully flipped design, and some instructors might not want to commit to flipping every class. We tested the effectiveness of flipping just one component (a module on junk science) of a large methods course. We…

To better understand why some programs, but not others, are changing names, we surveyed chairpersons (Study 1) and faculty (Study 2) within graduate psychology and psychological science programs. Within psychology programs, a name…

In a semester-long study designed to maximize experimental control in a naturalistic setting, we adapted…

We randomly assigned students to either 50/50 BL or 100% FTF versions of a research methods and statistics in psychology course.
