Apply what you’ve learned, and recognize it in your lives
I want students to take course material out of the classroom – see how psychology lives and breathes in their daily lives. To accomplish that, I encourage everyone to use the course hashtag #ubcpsyc217 to tweet about how you see research methodology operating in real life. I will occasionally compile tweets from members of the class and discuss them in class. Here are some examples from previous years!
Seriously? a homemade contraption with non FDA approved equipment that's supposed to increase oxygen content in your blood through a piece of plastic on your feet? There's literally no evidence. No studies have been replicated w/ same results. This is infuriating #ubcpsyc217

And this, #UBCPSYC217 students, is why properly operationally defining your conceptual variables is important. Also how quantitative methods have massive shortcomings. Also this is absurd. https://t.co/TLJh2AxREw

Wonder if there really is a correlation between my hours of studying and my grade on tomorrow's exam. My confound? Lack of sleep #ubcpsyc217
