really beneficial and practical for reading articles and developing your own idea around how peer reviewed articles are written so you can broaden your understanding of research, and become a more effective consumer of research.

An excellent course for anyone wanting a clearer understanding of GRIT but more so for me, an excellent introduction into understanding the structure of a research project and how to most efficiently and effectively read with some analytical understanding a research paper.

Obversely this course is much less popular than other coures in this seris. Most people taking this course are not going to be an experimental psychologist, they just want to learn some practical skills to lead a better life, and there are many other ways to evaluate a psychological trick, no need to systematically learn the study methods, so no wander that people are not quite interested in this. It seems that this course do not provide methods to enhance self-control and grit, but Kelly M.'s The Willpower Instinct introduces a lot of useful methods.
