Lab meeting: gamified
In an effort to keep our online lab meeting fresh and engaging, we gamified it. In the board game "Fact or Crap", one player reads a statement off of a card and everyone else holds up a sign indicating whether they think that statement is true (Fact) or not (Crap). We modified this game to fit our discussion of a recently published perception paper that reviewed many different theories in its Introduction (don't worry, we aren't going to name or shame the authors or the theories here). We reviewed each theory, then took votes as to whether it was a tenable explanation for how speech perception works. Some were (top half of photo); others weren't as warmly received (bottom half). Conflicting answers made for lively discussions. We highly recommend it!
