Turning Classroom Activities Into Research: A Replication of the Lost-letter Study
MetadataShow full metadata
What began as an idea for an undergraduate psychology class activity, intended to increase understanding of social influence, became a replication of an early social psychology study. It also offered the students a unique opportunity to learn about research by jointly participating in a small group study of their own. The AUT School of Education Conference presentation gave me an opportunity to showcase the methods and outcomes of that classroom activity as a novel means of engagement in the subject for students, as well as the publication opportunities arising from the activity/study.
