#crit101 v2 – Week Six

In the final week of #crit101 the focus is on self reflection. The week six page has been updated with the video lecture, reading material and information about this week’s assignments.

The final Twitter discussion will be on Wednesday (17.04.13) between 6PM and 7PM (BST).

One of the key features of the final week is the end of course survey. Please take the time to complete it carefully. It is both an important part of your reflective process, and will also provide me with useful feedback about the course.

#crit101 v2 – Week Five

In week five #crit101 is turning its attention to synthesis and evaluation. The week five page has been updated with the video lecture, reading material and information about this week’s assignments.

This week’s assignment is collaborative and involves video. It should be both challenging and enjoyable. I have tried to include as much information about this in the lecture and on the blog. But as always, should you have questions or need help, please turn to the community and ask.

The weekly Twitter discussion will be on Wednesday (10.04.13) between 6PM and 7PM (BST).

Week Three: Reflection

Originally published here.

I thought that this weeks follow up project was very important, even more so than last weeks project. I think this because we learnt a very crucial technique, which is to be able to critique your own work.

One must be honest and realistic when evaluating research, because when publishing findings, you will want them to be able to be generalised to various other settings and or populations. This can only happen if there is high reliability and validity. Therefore necessary skills to know how to test. 

Overall, on the #crit101 course so far, I feel I have been stretched to build upon elementary skills and knowledge I have of independent learning, collaborative work and the measures of validity and reliability, and develop them in to scientific techniques and skills that I will be able to apply in real life.

I also believe the course is very helpful to my study of psychology, because the topics we are discussing in #crit101 are helping me to understand psychological studies in more depth, by me being able to evaluate, discuss and collaborate with others better.
