Psych 302 RESEARCH METHODS IN COGNITIVE NEUROSCIENCE (0.6 FTE, ULWR)

Daniel Weissman, danweiss@umich.edu

Psych 302 is writing-intensive course that teaches undergraduate students how to design and analyze functional MRI studies. The course is highly structured and organized, and the GSIs play a pivotal role in delivering course content during laboratory sections. Thus, this GSI position is appropriate for graduate students who enjoy teaching in the context of a well-organized course.

Every week, each GSI leads two 80-minute laboratory sections (20 students per section), attends a 1.5 hour lecture given by the professor, and attends an 80-minute GSI meeting just after the lecture ends (except for the Thanksgiving Holiday when the meeting will take place at an alternate time). The GSIs also prepare lesson plans and other materials for laboratory sections (although most of these can be re-used from prior semesters) and assist with preparing multiple-choice exams. They also provide feedback on rough drafts of student writing assignments, grade the final versions of student writing assignments, grade other assignments (e.g., oral presentations), and tutor students during weekly office hours and at individually scheduled times.

The laboratory sections involve a mixture of brief presentations and “hands-on” activities that cover the fundamentals of conducting "task-based" functional MRI studies. For example, the GSIs show the students how to perform a computer-based reaction time experiment (programmed by the professor), analyze the data (using step-by-step instructions provided by the professor), and write an APA-formatted paper based on the results (using a detailed rubric written by the professor). The GSIs also lead the students through analyses of real fMRI data with Statistical Parametric Mapping (SPM) software (using step-by-step written instructions provided by the professor). In addition, the GSIs review case studies of patients with brain damage who have lost certain cognitive abilities, create Powerpoint presentations to review class readings and important concepts, grade students' Powerpoint-based oral presentations, and lead class discussions on various class topics. The GSIs also organize student peer reviews of writing assignments, which sometimes occur during the laboratory sections. Notably, most of the relevant GSI materials (e.g., Powerpoint slides, fMRI analyses, etc.) already exist and so GSIs can re-use these materials from prior semesters.

 COMPETENCIES: Familiarity with cognitive neuroscience and functional MRI (e.g., prior experience with functional MRI or completion of a course in functional MRI such as Psych 840). In addition, because this course satisfies the Upper Level Writing Requirement in LSA, GSIs must have previously taken (or concurrently take) the one-credit course, WRITING 993: Teaching Writing in the Disciplines (lsa.umich.edu/sweetl...aduates/courses.html).

 

Psych 303 RESEARCH METHODS IN PSYCHOLOGY: ADVANCED LAB (0.6 FTE, ULWR)

Peer reviews of drafts will be incorporated into several of the labs.  GSI's must also attend the lecture and a weekly meeting of the instructional team.  GSI's take turns developing lab lesson plans & weekly quizzes two weeks in advance. Discussion of the lesson plans is one of the primary roles of the weekly meeting. This course satisfies the college upper-level writing requirement, and GSIs must complete the WRITING 993 training course. GSI's must have background in psychological research.

These positions typically involve working with existing after-school programs with school age children. The GSI will be involved with helping to facilitate class sessions, assist with course development, and evaluate student work. Other aspects of the position include managing fieldwork and developing and grading assignments based on fieldwork.
