CREP (www.crep-psych.org) will be offering a workshop via Zoom during Summer, 2023 run by Jared Branch (Avila University), Jordan Wagge (Avila University), and Mark Brandt (Michigan State University).
We will select up to 14 full-time psychology instructors in the United States who would like to implement CREP in their classroom. Participants will be paid a $1,000 stipend for attending the workshops. The workshop does not cost anything for the participants.
Instructors can participate even if they have already been implementing CREP in their classroom, although we will prioritize new instructors. In Summer 2023, participants will attend a series of four workshops. These will be held on July 5, July 12, July 26, and August 9 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Central Time. Individual meetings will be held with participants during the week of July 17 and July 31.
Here is a brief description of each session:
Meeting 1 (July 5): Introduction. Topics: CREP history, infrastructure, resources, mission, and products. Discussion of lessons learned with instructors who have used CREP. Introduction to currently available studies.
Meeting 2 (July 12): Teaching CREP. Topics: CREP Step-by-Step from the learner’s lens – participants will create mock CREP projects in groups. Presentations and discussion around teaching replication and open science. Well-done exemplar OSF pages will be shown and discussed.
Meeting 3 (week of July 17). Individual meetings. Participants will schedule individual (30-60 minute) meetings with one of the conference hosts to begin discussing how CREP can be implemented in their specific course(s).
Meeting 4 (July 26). Extension Hypotheses and Individualized Student Experiences. Topics: Mentoring extension hypotheses, with an emphasis on extension hypotheses that meaningfully engage students on questions related to diversity, equity, inclusion, and access. CREP alumni will discuss their individualized experiences.
Meeting 5 (week of July 31). Individual meetings. Participants will schedule individual (30-60 minute) meetings with one of the conference hosts to continue discussing how CREP can be implemented in their specific course(s).
Meeting 6 (August 9). Participant Presentations and Teaching Hackathon. Topics: Participants will present the highlights of the course or assignment(s) they have prepared as a result of the workshop. The rest of the session will engage participants in a “hackathon”-style meeting to develop curricular/teaching materials for CREP.
Participants will be expected to spend around 35 hours of time engaged in workshop-related activities total. During the months of June and July, 2023, we anticipate they will spend around 16 hours in group workshops, 2 hours in individual meetings, and 8 hours working independently on their materials and course preparation. During December 2023 and June 2024 when we follow up with participants about their progress, we anticipate they will spend around 1 hour total answering brief questions. Finally, we anticipate that participants will spend 8 hours during June and July 2024 contributing to our manuscript. We will offer participants each a $1,000 stipend for their participation.
We will select participants based on several criteria, including:
- whether the applicants (and their students) are from diverse backgrounds
- opportunity for impact (prioritizing those who teach the course most frequently)
- career stage (e.g., early career instructors)
In Summer 2024, we will invite participants to work on a manuscript for a teaching-focused journal that addresses each participant’s experience implementing CREP organized around course and instructor characteristics that vary across participants, such as class size, instructor autonomy, and learning outcomes. This paper will also heavily emphasize participants’ experiences developing extension hypotheses with their students related to DEIA issues, which we discuss in more detail in the Workshop 4. We expect for the paper to be submitted at the end of August 2024, which will officially conclude the proposed workshop series.
Applications are due by the end of the day on April 30.
This workshop series is funded by NSF Award 2312491
