Last spring, the Human Development and Psychology departments launched the Experiential Research Learning Program (ERLP), which is designed to expose introductory students to HUD/Psych research in a way that is interactive and fun. Students enrolled in Intro classes need to earn research points by attending research presentations or panel discussions, serving as a research participant, or reviewing research articles. After a successful first semester, the program is up and running again this fall. To learn more about the ERLP, including the results from our assessment of the program, go to: http://www.uwgb.edu/martinr/erlp.htm
Speaking of research, the Human Development and Psychology Departments are excited to introduce the Faculty Colloquia Series. Each month a different faculty member will do a presentation on one of their research projects. These presentations are open to anyone who would like to attend and will serve as a good way to get to know your professors’ research areas (hint: these will be especially valuable if you are thinking about being a research assistant, as you will learn more about the kinds of research we do). To see the Colloquia Series Fall Schedule, go to http://www.uwgb.edu/martinr/cs.htm. The first presentation will be on Monday, September 24th, from 5:00-5:30 in MAC 107. Dr. Ryan Martin will present on Knowledge and Attitude Changes during a Course on Mental Illness.
Still more research information! Dr. Von Dras is in need of a Research Assistant for this semester for a study that explores health perceptions of older adults. If you are interested, please contact him at: email@example.com.
