Frank LoSchiavo by his poster

Loschiavo presented "Teaching Research Methods by Detecting Deception Using Thermal Imaging.” He shared how he encouraged students enrolled in his Research Methods course to design and conduct a professional-grade, semester-long, group research project to determine if thermal imaging could distinguish between liars and truth-tellers during an interrogation that followed a simulated theft. The students learned research methods firsthand by applying principles of research design, statistical analysis, and manuscript preparation.
