PSY8556: Informational Systems in Psychology

Credits 3
This class is about information: finding it, managing it, and using it to further your educational goals. A few of the assumed student goals in this class are publishing, conference presentations, and academic poster sessions. In this course students will be exposed to, and practice, the art of searching databases, evaluating journals using several measures, finding information about and applying to conferences, writing an abstract and creating a poster. In this class we will also explore the many academic disciplines with connections to psychology. This class is highly experiential, which means students must come to class with a working computer every week.
