The Psychology Department Research Series / Advanced Psychology Lab aims to support the members of the psychology community and students writing on their thesis in their research activities. The meetings usually take place on the first Thursdays of each month of the academic year (September-July) from 9.00a.m.-11.00a.m. Researchers present research at any stage at which it can benefit from a presentation and discussion among peers - work in progress, work under review, students writing a thesis give a set-up presentation as well as a results presentation.
Usually, presenters start by giving a conference-like power point presentation of about 45 minutes, followed by discussion, questions and critical comments from the audience, and development of further ideas. Single presentations given by one presenter can be replaced by two mini presentations given by two presenters (each about 20 minutes presentation and 30 minutes discussion).
Topics and presenters of the psychology department research series are coordinated by Dr. Julia Pitters (email@example.com) and announced in advance on the Psychology Website. lt is also possible to post presentations on the Website after the presentation.
