Dr Julie Goodhew

Taster Day Assistant

School of Psychology (NC) (Faculty of Health & Human Sciences (NC))

Role

I am a Research Fellow for the EPSRC funded eviz project (Energy Visualisation for Carbon Reduction).  We are investigating whether demand for energy can be reduced when energy is made more visible, for users. If so, what are the key features of such visualisations.

I teach on the PSY250 module (Workplace Learning and Skills Development) in the School of Psychology and supervise final year projects.

Qualifications

PhD (Psychology) 
BSc (Hons) Psychology
Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE)
BA (Hons) Business Studies
RSA Counselling in the Development of Learning

Professional membership

British Psychological Society (Graduate Member, MBPsS)

Teaching interests

Within the School of Psychology, I teach on module PSY250 and supervise project students in their final year.

I have however, spent my earlier career in Schools and FE Colleges, teaching vocational and academic Business and Marketing.  During this time I coordinated courses, led a Business Studies section and acted as a College Counsellor. I have also been an Assistant Examiner for AS Business Studies (AEB) and have also taught on the Open University DZX222 and B120 modules.

Research interests

Visualisations and the influence of the visual on behaviour (in the context of resource use)

ABC Interventions (Antecedent - Behaviour -Consequence)
Persuasive Communications
Persuasive Technologies
Persuasive Significance
Framing (Particularly the effect of specificity, abstract vs concrete, positive vs negative presentations/communications)
Psychological Prompts
Use of vivid imagery/visualisation
Behavioural Economics
