Workshop Facilitators:  

  Dr Samuel Fairlamb is a Post-Doctoral Teaching Associate in the Department of Psychology at Royal Holloway, University of London. He primarily teaches Research Methods and Social Psychology to undergraduate and postgraduate students. His research is formed of two main interests: (1) the need for self-esteem and meaning to buffer from existential-based concerns, and how this can be applied to a variety of human phenomena, including why humans struggle to peacefully co-exist; (2) how the need for self-esteem can lead to counter-productive outcomes to effective learning in an educational-based environment. Sam is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.


Dr Lewis Jayes is a Teaching Associate in the Department of Psychology at Royal Holloway, University of London. His teaching is primarily in the area of Research Methods and Statistics, as well as Cognitive Psychology and Language, having taught on courses in these areas from first year undergraduate through to postgraduate levels.
