Across all science fields, including psychology, research and effective use of statistics is what helps us to make sense of the world. Psychology in particular allows us to understand why we act the way we do as individuals and operative collectively as a society.
Scientists, including psychologists, need to be trained in a range of research methods and data analytics techniques to quantify the phenomena they study. This course will introduce learners to the scientific methods of research, including an overview of research design and techniques for analysing data, and provide practical experience in collecting and analysing data.
This course is delivered via six interactive online modules:
- Ethics in Research
- Research Design
- Getting Started with Research
- Processing Data
- Data Analysis and Interpretation
- Drawing Conclusions and Communicating Scientifically
Students will also complete a two-day practical workshop where they will run their own research project.
