Learning and Cognition Lab

We focus on studying student learning and cognition. For instance, we study effective ways of learning from self-explaining, collaborating, tutoring, and observing learning dialogues, as well as how misconceptions arise and how they can be addressed.Positions are available for students who are able to help with duties related to: assisting with conducting experimental sessions, coding and/or analysis of data, finding related work publications, providing feedback and insight during lab meetings, development of power-point presentations promoting our work, manuscript feedback and copy-editing (knowledge of Word and Powerpoint is therefore a must). We are looking for students who are excited about topics related to learning and cognition, who are conscientious with a keen eye for detail and who are able to work with minimal supervision. Students will be expected to spend 6-9 hours in the lab per week. PLEASE NOTE: PSY 399 and PSY 499 may not be available since this lab is not located in Psychology nor offered by a Psychology faculty member. However, this research opportunity could be a valuable experience if you would like to volunteer as a research assistant.
