Noba announced a student video project earlier this Fall with a March 27th 2015 deadline. Be sure to check it out and see if there are ways of incorporating it into the Spring 2015 syllabus! And good luck!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Noba’s mission is to bring the highest quality psychology learning materials to students everywhere for free (www.nobaproject.com). We also believe in creating opportunities for students to get involved in engaging, active learning. With that goal in mind, Noba is offering $10,000 in student awards for active learning video projects in the 2014-2015 academic year.

We want students to bring the science of psychology to life in creative and memorable ways. The focus of the 2015 Noba Student Video Award is “Social Influence”. We challenge students to choose a central concept related to social influence from either of two online Noba modules and create a short video that is engaging, memorable and will help other students better understand the concept, phenomenon, or experiment that has been selected.

The two modules to choose from are . . .

  • 1.      Persuasion:  So Easy Fooled (http://noba.to/y73u6ta8)
  • 2.      Conformity and Obedience (http://noba.to/hkray8fs)

Noba will award $6,000 for the top honor and $3,000 and $1,000 for the second and third place submissions. Winning videos will also be featured on the Noba website within the modules they focus on and become a part of the learning experience for other students.

The Award guidelines and submission form can be found at http://nobaproject.com/student-video-award.

The submission deadline is March 27, 2015.

Questions can be directed to info@nobaproject.com
