PSYC 5200 R11 - Fixing Psychology's Replication Crisis
Session I, June 1 - July 1, 2021
Online: TTh, 1-4 p.m.

Graduate course. This course is an introduction to the Open Science approach to psychology. We will trace the origins of a “replication crisis” that shook the field over the past 10 years. This involves understanding some faulty research practices and misguided incentives within the discipline that arguably undermined the scientific process. We engage those issues primarily by reviewing “autopsies” of some psychological findings that have been challenged recently. Then we explore some reform practices that are intended to foster a more transparent, reproducible, and accurate research enterprise. Our ultimate goal is to help you to figure out whether open science practices might enhance the ways you “do” and consume research, the way that you teach undergraduates and interact with peers when conducting or analyzing research, and how you might advocate for reform in your own academic networks.
