OpenSesame Staff Training October 10th and 17th

After a successful workshop last May, SOLO is organizing another 2-day staff-training workshop this October, hosted by the developers of OpenSesame themselves. The workshop will consist of a structured introduction for beginners on the first day (no prior knowledge needed!), and address more advanced topics and questions on the second. The training is meant to help staff with the upcoming switch from E-prime to OpenSesame in the Research Master. sign up here

Why this Workshop?

Open-source Python based experiment builders have become increasingly popular among researchers and students at the FSW. With especially OpenSesame proving a viable alternative to E-prime for many, and being supported by SOLO (e.g. see our Wiki)

Partly in response, the Experimentation course for Research Master students will be switching from E-prime to Python and OpenSesame this academic year. E-Prime will remain available and will continue to be supported by SOLO. However, this switch will impact the experience and skills that RM students bring to thesis projects and other research activities.

SOLO therefore wants to help staff members gain some familiarity with OpenSesame, whether to be able to program tasks yourself, or to supervise students and Phd's who work with OpenSesame.
