We have produced a new resource for teachers in collaboration with Futurum Careers, a free online resource and magazine aimed at encouraging 14-19-year-olds worldwide to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEM), and social sciences, humanities and the arts for people and the economy (SHAPE).
The resource will be shared with thousands of teachers internationally through a magazine and newsletter, and well as being made available online at the Futurum website, and via Teachers Pay Teachers and the Times Educational Supplement.
Our research has been disseminated over the summer at a number of conferences, including Karen and Zahra presenting work of self-cues in literacy and numeracy at the BPS Developmental Section conference, and Josh presenting his ESRC project data collection at Gorilla's BeOnline conference.
A multi-experiment paper reporting data from our Leverhulme-funded 'Me in Memory' project has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Experimental Child Psychology. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jecp.2021.105197
Sheila, Josh and Zahra presented their self lab research at the Society for Research in Child Development (SRCD) Biennial meeting, April 7th-9th 2021. https://www.srcd.org/event/srcd-2021-biennial-meeting
A huge welcome to new research fellow Charlotte Wilks, who has joined us from Stirling University!
Teachers (and parents) interested in finding our more about applying the self in learning can access a recent article published in Teach Early Years: How the word 'you' can improve children's learning.
Josephine has been awarded a prestigious BA Fellowship for 2020/21, focusing on using the development of self to understand and ameliorate the perceived loss of self in dementia to study self-processing . Congratulations!
Warm welcome to Karen Golden and Joshua March, who will be working on our ESRC project. We're all very excited to get this project up and running!
[December 2019] We are delighted to have been awarded a research grant of nearly £500,000 from ESRC. The funding is for a three-year project called 'Self-referencing in the classroom: The influence of self-cues on children's information processing and retention'.
[June 2019] Congratulations to lab member Zahra Ahmed, whose poster on self-processing biases in visuo-spatial working memory won the university's People's Choice Awards at Abertay's postgraduate poster session - well done Zahra!
[April 2019] We have published a guest blog on our research in The Learning Scientists, a website for educators and psychologists interested in applied education research. Read it here: http://www.learningscientists.org/blog/2019/4/11-1
[Jan 2019] A major paper from our Leverhulme-funded project on self-development has been published in Child Development - happy days! The paper is called 'The me in memory: The role of the self in autobiographical memory development'.
