CPD Workshop: Teaching Reproducible Research Resources
28 November 2018
Over the last few years, concerns about the reproducibility of research findings has prompted re-examination of ‘questionable research practices’ commonplace in traditional psychological science. Consequently, the way that researchers conduct, analyse, and report psychological findings is changing.
This reproducibility crisis influences the credibility of the psychological knowledge acquired by our students.
It also has implications for the teaching of quantitative research methods. Yet, formal curricula are slow to react. Furthermore, the research methods training received by most psychology educators will have been according to the traditional paradigm.
This timely workshop provides University lecturers and pre-tertiary teachers with an introduction to the reproducibility crisis facing Psychology. It outlines how psychological science is responding to this challenge, and presents case studies of how psychology education is adapting.
