The goal of the health psychology community is to inspire the development of key research skills while conducting a review of health psychology literature. Using credible, scholarly articles, we are exploring various topics within the field of health psychology, including: behavioral therapies for mental illness, the intersection of race and gender in the healthcare industry, what motivates people to maintain a healthy lifestyle, and the complex role of the media in health. As we compile our research using 1Cademy, we hope to discover patterns and gaps in the literature that could be addressed in a future study of our own design. Each week, interns read an article, summarize it using 1Cademy, present their findings to the group, and engage in thoughtful discussion about themes present in their article.
One of the most important aspects of 1Cademy is its unique knowledge representation format. To become a researcher on 1Cademy, you should first engage in one of our ongoing research projects, as a participant. In the project, randomly chosen for you, we will test which type of knowledge representation format works better for your reading comprehension, short-term learning, and long-term learning. This will not only help us improve the design of 1Cademy, but along the way, you will get experience about how to use 1Cademy. For this purpose, you should create an account on our research website and specify your availabilities for three sessions with our UX researchers. In the first session, they will ask you to read two short passages and answer some questions about those passages. This will take an hour. The second and third sessions will be only for 30 minutes each and follow a similar format. Note that it is necessary to complete the second and third sessions, exactly three and seven days after the first session. So, please carefully specify your availability on our research website.
