2021 An introduction to TELLab – The Experiential Learning LABoratory, a web-based platform for educators

Saturday, May 22, 2021, 8:00 – 9:00 AM EDT

Organizers: Jeff Mulligan, Independent contractor to UC Berkeley; Jeremy Wilmer, Wellesley College
Speakers: Ken Nakayama, Jeremy Wilmer, Justin Junge, Jeff Mulligan, Sarah Kerns

This satellite event will provide a tutorial overview of The Experiential Learning Lab (TELLab), a web-based system that allows students to create and run their own psychology experiments, either by copying and modifying one of the many existing experiments, or creating a new one entirely from scratch.  The TELLab project was begun a number of years ago by Ken Nakayama and others at Harvard University, and continues today under Ken’s leadership from his new position as adjunct professor at UC Berkeley.  To date, TELLab has been used by around 20 instructors and 5000 students.

After a short introduction, TELLab gurus will demonstrate the process of creating and running an experiment, exporting the data and analyzing the results.  Complete details can be found on TELLab’s satellite information website:  http://vss.tellab.org.  Potential attendees are encouraged to visit the site at http://lab.tellab.org beforehand to create their own account and explore the system on their own.

Hope to see you there.  Happy experimenting!
