Internal Seminar: Presenting 2 projects on Satisfaction and Weighting ratings: Dr Neel Ocean (faculty WMG)
Teams

Hosted by Mikhail Spektor

I am happy to announce the final internal seminar of this term, on November 30, 12:00-13:00 on Microsoft Teams (link below). Neel Ocean (WMG) will present two of his projects to give our department an overview of his research (abstracts below). I am sure these topics will interest many of you and hope to see you there!

 

Abstract 1: Satisfaction / attrition in the UK healthcare sector over the past decade

 

Previous research has highlighted poor working conditions in the NHS. However, it has not been established whether conditions have deteriorated over time, particularly relative to people in other industries. We analysed data from both the NHS monthly workforce statistics, and from the UK Household Longitudinal Study (UKHLS) to investigate whether conditions in the NHS appear to have deteriorated over the past decade. Results suggest that work-life balance has gotten worse over time in the NHS, even more so than in other industries.

 

 

Abstract 2: Weighting ratings: are people adjusting for bias in extreme reviews?

 

Are consumers adjusting the numerical rating of online reviews to account for fake or biased reviews? Two experiments tested treatments that manipulated how extreme ratings (1-star and 5-star) were presented. On average, reducing or flagging extreme ratings whilst preserving the mean rating does not affect perceived product quality. People appear to apply different weights to ratings of different scores, and the estimated weighting profile is asymmetrically hump-shaped.

WIE Networking Cafe: Evalulation

WIE Networking Cafes: A monthly chance to chat engagement

What are they?

Warwick Institute of Engagement are hosting a series of monthly Networking Cafes. These are chance for anyone with an interest in public engagement to get together for a coffee, lunch, or some cake and chat about public engagement. Each session will have a theme we're exploring, but these are intended as conversation starters and questions to connect people rather than a formal training session on the topic.

Can anyone come along?

Yes! We're more than happy to see academic/ teaching staff, technicians, professional services, students and anyone else come and join us. Please just sign up in advance so we know to expect you. You don't need to be an expert in public engagement, just someone who's interested in talking about it.

We know the timing isn't great for students so we'll also put on some extra sessions particularly for our student public engagement enthusiasts at least once a term.

Thursday 15 December, 12:30-1:30pm - Evaluation

Wolfson Research Exchange, The Library
This session we'll be working with our evaluation learning circle and talking about how we evaluate our engagement (and if you evaluate your engagement?).

Please register so we know you're coming (it helps us cater for the right numbers and stop food waste)

All-day
European Congress of Psychology

Runs from Wednesday, July 05 to Friday, July 07.

Statement of Interest

Scientific member role spec

The BPS is hosting the ECP 2023 on behalf of the European Federation of Psychology Associations in Brighton on 5-7 July 2023.

The theme for the event is Psychology Uniting Communities for a Sustainable World.

We are looking for a group of practitioners and researchers united by their energy and passion for psychology. We appeal to people from across all domains of psychology to come together in ensuring a dynamic, innovative and far-reaching scientific programme that reflects a blend of knowledge and experience representing the best of psychology. The theme of uniting communities requires psychology to build strong collaborations across borders between academics and practitioners alike. ·

The role of the Committee includes:

  • The responsibility for managing the scientific programme, including call for submissions, and decision making on selection of submitted abstracts and presenters.
  • Ensuring diversity and inclusion in all aspects relating to the scientific programme, including consideration of technology, accessibility for submissions, presentations and participation.
  • Encouraging wide participation from psychologists from different domains and regions Ensuring that the type and form of the congress programme promotes sustainability. For example, the call for submissions for an e-poster system which will replace hard copy and, that participation in the conference is possible virtually to its greatest extent. Applications are welcomed from across the membership – including academics, teachers, researchers and practitioners.

Applications are welcomed from across the membership - including academics, teachers, researchers and practitioners. We are also seeking undergraduate, postgraduate and early career members to ensure representation at all stages of the career pathway. The Society welcomes encourages applications from the following groups of people who are under-represented within our committees. Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic people. People with disabilities and, people who identify as LGBTQ+. We welcome all people who have the potential to help humanity in solving the problems that our world faces today. A statement of interest form and member role spec are attached.ResearchTeam@bps.org.uk no later than Friday 15th October.
