Win £100 Amazon voucher – spare 5 min to do an online test to explore your underlying beliefs about personality traits in different professions

My name is Yishu Qin and I am a PhD student from the Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge. My PhD project (in cooperation with Project Implicit from Harvard University) focuses on how people perceive different majors and whether their perceptions influence their career choices. I was wondering if you could spare 5 minutes to do this online test for my project? 

The test itself is as simple as a pairing game and is fun and inspiring. The study is completely anonymous, and the instructions are there when you click on the link. This is a really vital part of my PhD thesis on psychology and education. You will have a chance to win £25 or £100 in amazon vouchers as a reward for participation.

Below is my test link (please use a computer or a laptop, the test requires using keyboard so cannot be run on tablets or phones):

I would be very grateful if you could also pass the link to your university friends. 

If you have any idea to share with me, please contact Yishu Qin: yq228@cam.ac.uk

collaborate on projects, raise funds as well as gain recognition for their
work. CCN will define a market entry strategy that allows the client to grow
the platform to a global community. The project is open to students of all
degrees and subjects. 

 

Project 2: Product Launch – Lighting Devices for the

developing world. Having completed their prototype phase, the startup wants CCN
to undertake a market research campaign to recommend a strategy for their
product launch. The project is open to students of all degrees and subjects but
a background in engineering or finance is beneficial.

 

The start of the projects is Sunday the 25th of June.

Please find some programme details as follows:

Lovvol encourages our Ambassadors to explore China in an
engaging manner. We aim to foster cultural understanding and introduce
Ambassadors to the Chinese language and way of life, inspiring the next
generation of Chinese children to learn English and broaden their horizons.
Currently we offer three distinctive programmes:

Cultural Exchange – some classroom teaching (English)
combined with a range of cultural workshops, blended learning activities and
excursions; 

Inspiring Futures – a progressive holistic education
programme developed by our partner Future Foundations – to be delivered by our
Ambassadors to Chinese children. The differentiating factor is the
consideration given to the development of ‘emotional intelligence’ alongside
our core objectives of cultural exchange and language progression.

LOVVOL Adventurer – For the first time this year we have
teamed up with a summer camp provider specialising in water sports and
adventure activities for young children. If you are the sporty adventurous type
this might be a great way to combine a new cultural experience in China,
teaching and developing your leadership skills

How we operate & Role Descriptions:

Ambassador: Depending on the specific programme, Ambassadors
are asked to complete pre-departure research and training. After arrival in
China or Mongolia, Ambassadors will engage with school children, aged from 7-16
years old in groups of around 20. There will be no compulsory textbook for
teaching. However, sample materials will be provided. Teaching is normally
focused on conversational English and cultural workshops, while the format for
activity-based classes is active group learning and participation, for example
real situation English, outdoor activities, culture exchange and teaching
English songs etc; Support and assistance from experienced teachers will be
provided at the local institutions, so Ambassadors can develop confidence
gained from the pre-departure studying and training.

Start and end date:

1/07/2017 – 31/08/2017

Duration:

4 weeks to 2 months depending on student applicants’
availability and the programme

Skills and qualifications:

None required. Any previous teaching or volunteering abroad
experience or Mandarin language skills would be beneficial

Essentials:

All ambassadors must have a native level of spoken English,
and also enthusiasm, motivation and a willingness to interact with children and
embrace the experience!

for further enquiries. Places are limited and it is on first come first
reserved basis.

trips etc) for free
