In this workshop, you will learn now to use the intuitive Builder interface PsychoPy. This interface aims to be easy enough for use in undergraduate teaching, yet flexible enough for high-precision experimental psychology.

Getting started with basic experiments is really easy, but this workshop will show you how to extend those simple experiments into more feature-rich studies. We will look at some of the lesser-known features that PsychoPy provides, at some of the common mistakes in experiment building, and, gradually, start to add in code snippets to create richer, more flexible studies.

The workshop will be taught by the creator of PsychoPy: Dr Jon Peirce.

You will benefit more from the workshop if you have some knowledge of the programming language Python. We are offering an introductory workshop on the 24th of May.

The workshop is co-funded by Language@Leeds, the Whilte Rose Social Sciences DTP, and the School of Psychology (University of Leeds).

It is free for PGRs and staff from the Universities of Leeds, York and Sheffield. If you are from another university and would like to attend, please get in touch via
