Title

Psych RMS: An Online Interactive Course in Research Methods and Statistics

Submission Type

Poster

Abstract

This poster session describes a suite of online, interactive learning modules that instructors can use to develop a blended approach to teaching psychology research methods and statistics. These resources are being developed through a Teagle Foundation development grant that brings together faculty from seven institutions. Partner colleges are Albright, Bryn Mawr, College of Saint Benedict and Saint John\'s University, Saint Mary\'s College of California, Santa Rosa Junior College, Swarthmore, and Wesleyan University. The courseware consists of 18 self-contained modules. The modules were designed to reinforce students’ understanding of research method and statistical concepts and to give students opportunities to practice applying concepts with immediate feedback to facilitate mastery. The interactive courseware can be used by faculty and students to customize instruction to meet student needs and the learning data it generates can be used by faculty to use class time more efficiently and to devote more time to in-class activities and problem-based learning strategies designed to foster deep learning. Assessment of the courseware includes quantitative and qualitative data from a variety of sources, including data collected from the courseware, course evaluations, grade reports, and attitudinal surveys of faculty and student participants. We are seeking additional partner schools to assist with module assessment. The modules will be published as open educational resources at the end of the project.
