I enjoyed this course immensely because we learnt a lot about human memory and the difficulties when it comes to witness identification. In addition to articles about current studies, the course provided a wide range of online resources, expert interviews and examples for miscarriage of justice in the past. I found the theoretical part of the course very helpful for the practical part where participants could apply their new knowledge while solving a staged crime. We followed the investigation of two fictional detectives who used different approaches to solve a robbery. It felt a bit like watching two parallel universes where the same crime was solved by different detectives. In the end different people were convicted and we as participants had decide whether the police officers had made sound decisions or not. This demonstrated to me how important forensic psychology really is in order to avoid injustice. Thank you to the instructors for this amazing experience – I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone interested in this topic!
