Bayesian Statistics in Numerical Cognition
Dr. Tom Faulkenberry, Tarleton University
Its true! For years, many researchers have secretly yearned to accept the null hypothesis. Come out and hear Dr. Faulkenberry tell you how it can be done, complete with appropriate confidence intervals. Yes, it is possible to embrace the p > .05. And did you know that with Bayesian sequential testing, you can typically answer your research question with 30% fewer participants? Dr. Faulkenberry will demonstrate how to use JASP and other magical online tools, with exciting examples from numerical cognition research.
On Writing and Life in a Numerical Cognition Lab
Dr. Barbara Sarnecka
Do you ever feel like you don’t have time to write? Or that when you sit down to write, it’s hard to put words on the page? Or that you can put words on the page, but you don’t like them? Writing is a big part of our jobs, but most of us get no training or social support for it. In this session, Dr. Sarnecka will discuss some highlights from her Writing Workshop book, and explain how forming your own writing group can help you be a better and more productive writer.
Open Science for Math Cognition
Dr. Eric Wilkey and Dr. Lien Peters, Western University
You all know the expression - what happens in the lab stays in the lab! Avoid this narrow view of knowledge transmission and embrace the Open Science movement. The presenters will give an overview of the ways that you can make all aspects of your research process more transparent and more accessible. Learn how ORCIDs are not just flowers and how pre-registration can increase your productivity.
