Want to help my students? (Online research)

 

Help a student (or even two)!

A few of my students have some interesting online research going on as part of their courses – have a look and see if you’d like to  take part of :-). There is no payment for participation, except the warm glow you get inside for having helped someone out 🙂

Eyewitness testimony around pubs and clubs

One of my  students (Georgina Bartlett) is doing a study  investigating eyewitness memory for crimes that take place around pubs and clubs as part of her doctoral studies-  If you wish to take part, you will be asked to complete a consent form before watching a short video clip of a crime outside a bar. You will also be asked to fill in a short questionnaire. In total the study should take around 10 minutes. You can find out more about this study by clicking here.

How people interact with Facebook

One of my undergraduates, Christian Powell, is looking at how people interact with Facebook as part of their undergraduate studies. This questionaire will ask you how well you can resist clicking facebook notifications, and takes about 15 minutes. If you want to find out more, click here.

Quit smoking, win a holiday to the Caribbean.

If you live in London and smoke, you have to read this!

beachI am currently leading a research trial at London South Bank University to compare the effectiveness of two leading quit smoking programmes. If you smoke and are considering quitting it would be great if you could take part!

Both programmes are effective methods of support for people wanting to quit and are run by qualified professionals. Everyone who completes the research side of the program (which involves three short appointments at Elephant and Castle) will be entered into a prize draw to win prizes including gym membership, an ipad and a holiday in the Caribbean.

What will it involve?

You will be asked to see the research team four times. Each visit will last no longer than 5-10 minutes and evening and weekend appointments are available. For the final visit- we will come and see you at your home or workplace if it is easier. You will be entered for the prize draw regardless of whether or not you stay an ex-smoker, as long as all four appointments with the research team have been attended.

We are only recruiting limited numbers for this study, so make sure you don’t miss out.  You can find out more by clicking here or by emailing the team at quit@lsbu.ac.uk . Why not take the plunge and do it now?

 

New Study Participation Opportunity (London only)

Do you smoke or vape and live in London?

Would you like to take part in a valuable research study and get paid?

I’m really excited to be leading a research project funded by Cancer Research UK looking at people’s attitudes towards e-cigarettes. If you smoke tobacco or vape e-cigarettes we’d be really keen to hear from you. The study is open to non-smokers too! If you took part in our earlier E-cig research (which is still open by the way) you can still take part in this one….
