Brief PowerPoint presentations of research articles - Here's a great resource in the making! Rolf Reber and his colleagues at the University of Bergen in Norway are developing a database of PowerPoint presentations for specific research articles. Each presentation contains a few slides summarizing the article and reporting the results. Great for plugging into lectures or to send students to view. In Rolf's words, "We have built up POSbase, a database with Powerpoint presentations of psychological studies and keywords, available at <http://posbase.uib.no/posbase>. Teachers in psychology can download studies and keywords for their teaching. The presentations are interlinked so that students can go through presentations and keywords online. First student evaluations of the database have brought positive results, especially as a supplement to lectures. The database has been presented at last year's IEEE International Conference on Advanced Learning Technologies. Up to now, there are presentations of around 100 studies and of as many keywords on the database, mostly in the fields of cognitive psychology and social cognition; presentations are added regularly, so the database will grow. We focus on classic and recent studies that are relevant to teaching psychology at high school and undergraduate level." Rolf says they would welcome additional presentations submitted by other faculty. They would then create the interlinks between the presentations. You can take a look at the presentations already created at http://posbase.uib.no/posbase. [added 4/8/05]
