Network Institute end of year presentation

On Friday the fourth of July we presented the outcomes of our SIRUP project at the Network Institute end of year presentation.  Central to our presentation were  the results of the testing of the theoretical model and the three preliminary studies (complexity, familiarity, and conflict). If you have missed our presentation or would like to take another look at it, you can check out our presentation here: Network Institute SIRUP end of year presentation.

Testing the theoretical model

For the SIRUP project we conducted a total of three preliminary studies in order to try to identify successful indicators for complexity, familiarity, and conflict. In addition to the measures for these three factors, we included measures to enable us to test the theoretical model we developed based on the work of Daniel E. Berlyne and David Sylvia (see Figure 1).
