Course Target:

Training in the rules of psychological field research of a specified educational phenomenon - research report in publishable quality

Course Contents:
  • round off the research activity, launched in the previous semester (Psychological Methodology II), with a publication in The Archive of the Research on Mental Development and its History - Students Works(;
  • specify and carry-out the agenda in conceptualising the studied phenomenon, in gathering data, reading of relevant literature, writing the final report - all based on the assessment of the preliminary research report/memorandum issued from the previous research course;
  • elaborate the conceptualisation of the studied phenomenon with the aid of conceptual map - diagram;
  • focalize the collection of data according to the needs in the conceptualisation of the studied phenomenon (in general: getting the idea of its variability in a natural sociological unit - e.g. school class; of its ecological validity - children's life in an educational institution; its developmental validity - one or more "grades" of the studied education);
  • commit reading of relevant literature to looking for an argument, discussion, alternative conceptualisation of the studied phenomenon;
  • direct one's writing to theoretical integrity of the analytical story and to formal soundness of the published text;
  • utilise consultations with colleagues (seminar - particular problems of particular students) as means of immediate inspiration and/or generalizable methodological experience.
