Language of instruction English
You will gain familiarity with the main concept of social psychology and learn to identify how social psychological concepts impact individual and group decision processes. Furthermore you will learn to set up small experiments to validate these concepts.
This block consists of two parts:
1. Course: Social Psychology and Decision Making
Instead of an isolate individual process, decision making is often either explicitly or implicitly influenced by other people. This block takes a social psychological perspective on decision making. The course focuses on (1) how people’s decision making processes are influenced by the actual or imagined presence of others and (2) how decisions are made in collectives of people. The block introduces a number of social psychological concepts and connects these to decision making research. Tutorial groups (seminars) are the primary teaching methods. Next to participation and written exam, facilitation is also assessed.
2. Practical Training: Interaction Experiments
In this training, tailored to the course, you will learn about the practical aspects of cognition experiments by means of practical assignments.
