Final project support seminar
3.00 credits
15.0 h + 15.0 h
Q1 or Q2
This seminar aiming at developing communication and vulgarisation skills requires students to choose between several proposed topics in the field of psychology in order to deepen their knowledge of one topic through two different productions.
This seminar aims to enable students to develop their ability to communicate and transmit scientifically validated information on a topic in the field of psychology to a non-initiated audience.
The seminar is designed to develop the student's ability to interact with peers in a group setting, as teamwork is inherent to the profession of psychology. This competence is therefore essential to the psychology curriculum.

Teaching methods
The seminar is an opportunity for students to develop a dissemination resource for a specific audience, based on a theme proposed in each group, supervised by an assistant. This resource is developed by small groups of students.
The seminar sessions enable the group to prepare this resource, to build it on the basis of an in-depth theoretical study of the chosen topic in order to target a theoretically relevant and well chosen tool to reach the audience targeted by the dissemination tool.
The tool or resource developed (the form of which leaves creative freedom to the students) is to be presented in December to the teachers, other students and some professionals who are invited for the event.
