    Workshops are parallel sessions on Sunday morning from 8:00am-9:15am and cost no additional fees to attend.
    • 12 Steps to a Better Research Presentation: A Talk on Talks (Michael F. Green, Ph.D., UCLA)
      Sunday, 8-9:15am. Despite the importance of research presentations for one’s academic career, investigators typically receive very little training in how to conceptualize, organize, pace, format, and display an effective presentation. Unlike other academic products, such as papers and grants, feedback following presentations tends to be polite rather than constructive; hence, speakers rarely receive the type of information that helps them to improve their talks. The goal of this session is provide guidelines, strategies, and techniques to enhance the effectiveness of a research talk.
    • Using Mobile Phones in Psychological Research (Sara H. Konrath, Ph.D., Indiana University)
      Sunday, 8-9:15am. Over 90% of Americans own cellphones and people keep them with them for most of their waking hours. As public health researchers have discovered, this represents a unique opportunity for both collecting data and implementing cellphone-based interventions, whether using text messaging or smartphone apps. In this workshop, I will review the advantages and disadvantage of using mobile phones for psychological research, discuss mobile data collection and intervention (or experimental manipulation) tools, and discuss some recent examples in progress in our lab. The use of mobile phones in psychological research is currently rare, but they offer the opportunity to conduct unobtrusive field studies in participants’ natural contexts.
    • Best Practices in Research Participant Recruitment: An Applied Workshop (Nestor Lopez- Duran, Ph.D., University of Michigan)
      Sunday, 8-9:15am. Poor participant recruitment is the number one reason why clinical trials fail and a common obstacle in translational and social science studies. Recently, the NIH Clinical Trials Transformation Initiative (CTTI) published a Recruitment Best Practices proposal calling for a complete transformation of the recruitment processes employed by research teams. In this workshop, I will explain how to plan and develop effective participant recruitment campaigns using the CTTI recommendations and how to use software tools, such as Excel, Ripple, Facebook Ads, and Patient Registries, to execute and manage these recruitment campaigns. The workshop will also include a discussion of best practices for tracking participants in longitudinal studies and increase retention.
