Inhoud vak

This course covers advanced research methods in organizational
psychology and human resource management. A broad number of topics will
be covered, most likely including:
-Individual differences with a strong emphasis on intelligence
-Correlations and effect sizes
-Network analysis
-Meta-analysis
-Crisis in psychology?
-Field experiments and quasi-experiments, including trade-offs in
research
-Structural Equations Modeling
-Natural experiments
-Big data
- Measurements of physiological markers
Some of the topics are classics, such as experiments and meta-analysis,
others, like big data, are recent. The wide variety of topics reflects
the many ways research can be carried out.
In the course, practical examples and assignments, including case
studies, will be provided to obtain an
in-depth understanding of a number of these methods and their usefulness
for organizational development and human
resource management.
Disclaimer: This is not a specialist course on statistics; students
interested in an in-depth treatment of statistics should follow
specialized courses in the research master.
The use of statistics will be at the level necessary to understand the
research methods and not more, at least for most methods. For a few
research methods we will go into quite some detail on the statistics.
