Kinds of Bias that Shape Your Worldview Video Discussion
In order to allow us to thoroughly explore this interesting and important topic, Interviews and Deception, I have posted several videos, including a recorded presentation from a retired law enforcement officer and expert on Interviewing Skills. Doug Cash frequently trains law enforcement officers regarding interview skills and identifying signs of deception. Other videos include two informative videos from the ACFE, and a video of the pilot episode of Lie to Me, which explores the fascinating topic of micro-expressions.
Please review these videos and participate in the discussion this week, as outlined below:
Discussion participation requirements:
After reviewing the video, prepare a three to four-paragraph response, discussing your top several takeaways from the videos, as well as anything that stood out to you in the videos or other materials.
Post at least three substantive responses to other students’ responses to facilitate discussion and discovery.

Tones & Words
Video 4 – Lie to Me, Pilot Episode – This video is the pilot episode of the TV series that focused on the work of Dr. Paul Ekman, who conducted extensive studies of human emotions and reactions, and identified what he calls “micro-expressions”. These uncontrollable, automatic biological reactions will telegraph many human emotions and stress, even if the subject thinks they are hidden.
