Our Psychology students explore sensation and perception through experiential project

Undergraduate Psychology students of the International Faculty CITY College had the opportunity to deepen their understanding of sensations and the perception of those sensations through an innovative project introduced by Dr Aristea Ladas, in the frame of the unit Sensation & Perception.

Working in groups students were asked to select one project, from a list of projects - all related to the taught material - that they had to prepare and present in class in 10 minutes. Students were allowed to use whatever means they considered relevant and appropriate to present their project (e.g. role playing, small experiments in class, hand craft, electronic means etc.).

Students were highly motivated, enjoyed the whole process while at they same time experienced their sensations and perception and learnt from their fellow students’ experiences. Through the project they understood how sensation and perception are closely connected and play two different but complimentary roles in how people interpret the world.  Sensation refers to the process of sensing our environment through our sensory receptors, while perception is the process with which the brain interprets the sensation. The project enabled students to put this theory into practice and learn by experimenting with their own sensation and perception.

Dr Ladas commented “I was amazed by the creativity and professionalism exhibited by the majority of the groups!”
