Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Update from the 11th of November 2020:
Due to the current developments regarding COVID-19, from now on all planned classroom sessions will be held digitally.

Information about the method of LV:
This parallel course is based on a hybrid model according to the Flipped Classroom principle with blended learning units in Moodle, which includes attendance and feedback units as well as independent preparation and follow-up phases.

Aims and contents of this course:
Students will get an overview of the most important research topics in cognitive psychology. The content of the course focuses on perception & attention and emotion & aesthetics.
Furthermore, students will learn about different psychological methods (EEG, fNIRS, behavioral studies, eye-tracking etc.). A hands-on session is also planned.
In parallel, students will acquire basic scientific knowledge in literature search, critical reading, writing and presentation, as well as citing according to APA.

Assessment and permitted materials

Planning of a classroom session in small groups:
The students will plan and lead through one session in small groups (approx. 35 min), consisting of the presentation of a scientific paper (suitable literature is provided, approx. 20 min) and a guided group phase (e.g. discussion or experiment, approx. 15 min).
During the classroom sessions, several students should write a protocol (additional course credits for volunteers). This is to ensure that students who are unable to participate in the classroom session due to the Covid-19 situation (e.g. (pre-)illness, care of relatives, etc.) can catch up on the subject matter at home by themselves and in consultation with the teachers.
There is also the option of discussing the structure of the units with the teachers in advance.

Homework:
In preparation for each classroom session, all students read the relevant literature. There will be follow-up exercises in Moodle after each session (e.g. short multiple-choice test, short statement writing, summaries, etc.)

Final thesis:
Each student will independently find an article that fits to one of the discussed topics and write an essay (organization into the topic, summary, criticism, possible further studies).

LABS credits:
To pass the course, active participation in psychological research to the extent of 8 credits (2 hours) is required, as far as the university hygiene guidelines allow at that time.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

20% Home exercises (preparation and follow-up exercises in written form via Moodle)
40% Planning of a classroom session
40% Final thesis
Two missed sessions at maximum

Possibility to improve the grade by submission of written protocols of the classroom sessions. These should primarily serve those students who are not able to physically participate due to the current situation to Covid-19.
