Approaches to Applied Research

Building on the understanding gained in Research Methods for Psychology (Introduction), this module aims to support students to develop an understanding of the demands of applied research with a particular consideration of research in the field of educational psychology or similar applied context such as work or health. Students will further develop their understanding of data collection and analysis and carry out a mini class experiment and a critical analysis of published research.
