    The provision of CBL within social psychology has been, to date, largely restricted to providing introductory teaching material and event‐logging tools. Experiment generators, as exist in the more formal domains of cognitive psychology, are required to actively engage students in acquiring practical professional skills. Here we introduce the concept of Multimedia Experiment Packages (MEPs), which lie somewhere between conventional CBL and free‐form experiment generator packages. Two case studies are described which offer integrated MEP environments to promote sound research skills.
