The Psychology@LSE has its own highly skilled technicians, and provides world class expertise, excellent research support facilities with the backup of senior Psychology@LSE faculty.
The facilities available include interview recording equipment, various types of microphones, telephone recording equipment, transcription machines, camcorders, tripods, video recorders, and computer software for running social psychology experiments (e.g., ERTS, Inquisit). The Technicians can also provide assistance in the design and writing of computer programmes to run studies or produce internet based surveys, and have access to digital video editing suites and multi-media authoring and production facilities.
There are a number of dedicated laboratories for use – these include a multimedia presentation lab, a general multimedia and interactive computing lab, two general computing laboratories and an observational lab (with two-way mirrors). We regularly use these facilities in the course 'Research Methods for Social Psychology' to videotape students conducting interviews and focus groups, which they can then use as feedback on their skills, and also in preparing research students for conference presentations.
The cost of hiring one of our rooms is £300 plus VAT for a day (excluding technical support which is £50 per day for external users). Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
