Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

In the first semester of this TEWA course, groups of 5 students will develop a research question related to reward processing in social interaction or music, and set up a small research project to address the research question.
Data for the research project will be collected and analysed in TEWA 2.

AIMS:
1. Learn to read, interpret, critically reflect on, and integrate research literature on reward processing in the context of social behaviour and music.
2. Learn to derive a relevant research question from existing literature.
3. Learn to design a simple empirical study to address the research question

CONTENTS:
The weekly sessions consist of:
- Introductory sessions with discussions on research literature
- Oral group presentations of literature, research question and research plan
- Q&A sessions

METHOD:
The course will be held in hybrid format (50% of students is present in each session), with some online sessions. In the event of a lockdown, we will switch to fully online teaching.

2. Written research plan (preregistration of the planned research project)
3. Active participation in the sessions (discussions, giving peer feedback, implementing feedback)

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria
