PSY 101 Introductory Psychology
Instructor: Vincent W. Hevern, S.J., Ph.D.
|General Statement of the Research Participation Requirement||
Since research is fundamental to the development and advancement of psychology, one important aspect of knowledge development in this area is an understanding of how research works. The research component of this course can be fulfilled in a couple of ways.
A. Participation in two one-session research projects;
B. Completion of Literature Reviews, addressing the questions provided below, for two articles from psychology journals (on reserve at the library or available online from the class web page); or,
C. A combination of 'A' and 'B' (two total tasks, one from research project participation and some from journal article review).
Keep in mind there is no guarantee that there will be two one-session projects, or that projects will be available when YOU want them. This would not relieve you of your responsibility, it would mean you have to 'fill in' with journal article reviews. The participation must be done on the researchers' timetables. You must NOT sign up to participate during your class times. Research participation is NOT an excused absence.
