Primary Instructor:

This is an experiential learning course designed to provide research-based interviewing and data management experiences to students. Students will learn to follow a research-based interviewing protocol to study the effects of the impact of violent video games on violence among children and adolescents. Students also will learn techniques of data management, including tracking returned survey data (child, parent, and teacher data) and entering data into a statistical software package data base. Students are expected to spend up to 8 hours per week interviewing children in area schools and performing data management tasks at the Institute for Social research at the University of Michigan. In addition, weekly supervision (one hour) will include: learning the research-based protocol; reviewing procedures for working effectively with children and adolescents from diverse backgrounds; understanding the context and climate of the schools that are hosting the research; and discussing scientific articles in the field of effects of media violence on children and adolescents.
