10am THE CREDIBILITY REVOLUTION IN PSYCHOLOGY
Professor Simine Vazire (University of California, Davis)
(includes morning tea)
Abstract: A fundamental part of the scientific enterprise is for each field to engage in critical self-examination to detect errors in our theories and methods, and improve them. In this talk, I discuss how well psychology, as a science, has been living up to this ideal, and what principles should guide our efforts to improve our science.
