Where and how to sign up

For signing up, simply send an email to PsyToolkit

Subject line: Please register me for the October 2022 PsyToolkit course.

You will then receive details on how to pay for the course

Payment can be done via bank transfer, credit card, or PayPal.

Note that it is small group teaching. Individual students get the needed attention when there are questions.

When you sign up, we will reply and you will be put on the list. Once sufficient participants have signed up, you will be asked to pay. There are different payment options. That way: If too few participants sign up, you will know before you paid.

Feedback from last year

Last year, we ran a course like this. All students enjoyed it very much and it was a massive success.

Students particularly enjoyed:

  • that the course was provided by the PsyToolkit developer

  • that the students learned to implement student’s own projects

  • that they felt more comfortable and confident after the course

  • that there was good learning experience

  • that they learned something new every course day

  • that the course leader (Professor Stoet) is very response to participants' questions
