The Daily Dose

Psychology
KS5 >

Cardiff University has developed a series of simple, engaging activities to support research methods teaching. Each edition of 'The Daily Dose' aims to foster a basic understanding of how health news and health scares arise in the media, and what simple signs to look for to decide if they are based on strong evidence. The content is based on Cardiff University's research into exaggerations in health news. The activities help students to identify clues in real examples of news stories to uncover whether there is good evidence to back up what the news is claiming. At the same time, they help students understand key aspects of research methods: variables, correlation, experiments, confounds.
