The first ever Psychology Students Association seminar series is due to start this Friday at 4:00pm in room 24A, 306. The first seminar, "Statistics are like Bikinis: What the reveal is suggestive but what they conceal is critical" will be presented by respected statistics guru, Steve Cloete, and will be about how statistics are important, relevant and necessary in the 'real world'. The PSA will be providing pizza and drinks following the presentation and all undergraduate students are encouraged to attend.
The presentations in the PSA seminar series will be extrapolations of concepts covered in the undergraduate curriculum and will be presented in a fun, engaging and interactive manner. Through the seminar series, the PSA hopes to encourage a broader interest in psychology and also provide contextual information that may assist undergraduate students in their perennial battle against understanding the relevance of theoretical topics covered in class.
If you would like to present something at a PSA seminar, or you have a topic you would like to see covered, please contact the PSA committee:
