DE300 Methods Day (Glasgow)

2nd November 2019, GCU, Glasgow
Online booking has now closed, please contact scotland@oups.org.uk for availability.

This day is intended to support your understanding of the quantitative and qualitative methodologies presented in DE300 so that you are able to discuss these as required in the module TMAs, and also to help you apply the specific method that you have chosen for your DE300 project.

Although the day is aimed at students who are about to start the module, it is also beneficial for those not currently studying it who are thinking of registering for future presentations.

Students say that these days are inspirational and packed with content, making them excellent value in terms of time and money, and we hope that this event will be a popular addition to our regular programme for this final level module.


Registration will take place from 9.30am. Lectures will start at 10.00 am. The day will finish at approximately 4.30pm. 

Tutors and programmes

We have three experienced tutors providing the overviews of the key approaches covered by DE300.

She also contributes to a number of other modules, e.g. Applied Psychology, Physiology of Behaviour, Research Methods, Health Psychology and Forensic Psychology.

    With nine years of experience working as an applied psychologist, Monika has provided therapeutic interventions and developed psychological programmes for young adults and children with high functioning autism (Asperger Syndrome). Monika has also taught DE100 and DE200 as an Associate Lecturer with the OU, and is a popular lecturer at the OUPS weekend events.

    Judith also teaches part-time for a college and is currently completing an EdD (Doctorate in Education) on student interaction on Facebook. She is the author of a paper using discursive psychology called 'Doing being 'on the edge': managing the dilemma of being authentically suicidal in an online forum'.
  • David Moulds joined the OU in 2016, and teaches on DE100 and DE300. He has degrees in Philosophy and Psychology and Evolutionary Psychology, and is currently completing his PhD specialising in emotion and communication.
