Sarafoglou, Alexandra; Hoogeveen, Suzanne; Matzke, Dora; Wagenmakers, Eric-Jan – Psychology Learning and Teaching, 2020
The current crisis of confidence in psychological science has spurred on field-wide reforms to enhance transparency, reproducibility, and replicability. To solidify these reforms within the scientific community, student courses on open science practices are essential. Here we describe the content of our Research Master course "Good Research…

van Doorn, Johnny; Matzke, Dora; Wagenmakers, Eric-Jan – Psychology Learning and Teaching, 2020
Sir Ronald Fisher's venerable experiment "The Lady Tasting Tea" is revisited from a Bayesian perspective. We demonstrate how a similar tasting experiment, conducted in a classroom setting, can familiarize students with several key concepts of Bayesian inference, such as the prior distribution, the posterior distribution, the Bayes…

Blincoe, Sarai; Buchert, Stephanie – Psychology Learning and Teaching, 2020
The preregistration of research plans and hypotheses may prevent publication bias and questionable research practices. We incorporated a modified version of the preregistration process into an undergraduate capstone research course. Students completed a standard preregistration form during the planning stages of their research projects as well as…

Skorinko, Jeanine Lee McHugh – Psychology Learning and Teaching, 2018
This paper describes a classroom demonstration that showcases how pre-existing beliefs (e.g., stereotypes) influence problem-solving. Across four studies, participants solved riddles with gender stereotype-consistent (e.g. doctor is male) or gender stereotype-inconsistent (e.g., doctor is female; barber is female) solutions. Solve time, perceived…

Reflective learning entails a thoughtful learning process through which one not only learns a particular piece of knowledge or skill, but better understands "how" one learned it--knowledge that can then be transferred well beyond the scope of the specific learning experience. This type of thinking empowers learners by making them more…

Evidenced-based psychotherapies (EBPs) are primarily disseminated via in-person workshops, which have been shown to be effective in training clinicians. However, there is limited space at these workshops, they occur in limited locations, and the time and money required to travel to these workshops is limiting for many providers. An online virtual…
