Misconceptions about psychological phenomena are prevalent among students completing college-level psychology courses.

Hillbrink, Alessa; Jucks, Regina – Psychology Learning and Teaching, 2019
An academic career in psychology typically begins with a role reversal: young academics, who were only recently being taught, become doctoral researchers and teachers.

Yalch, Matthew M.; Vitale, Erika M.; Kevin Ford, J. – Psychology Learning and Teaching, 2019
Writing has long been recognized as both an outcome and method of successful pedagogy in psychology. Accordingly, there are a number of methods that successful instructors have employed to teach psychology students how to write. One such method is to facilitate students' reviewing each other's written work (i.e., to engage in peer review),…

Open Educational Resources (OER) remove barriers to access instructional material.

Cuttler, Carrie – Psychology Learning and Teaching, 2019
The bulk of previous research on students' perceptions of open educational resources have lacked a control group of students rating traditional textbooks. Moreover, few studies have examined differences in the perceptions of online students and those taking classes in the classroom. A 2 × 2 cross-sectional design was used in which 925 students,…

We surveyed college students (N = 105) asking them to rate the importance of workplace skills as if they were responding as themselves, as their parents, and as future employers. We also asked participants to generate a list of skills they considered most important to develop in college, and to evaluate workplace behaviors for the likelihood of…

Psychology graduates are employed in a wide variety of workplace roles. The broad nature of these future workplace requirements can make it difficult for students to learn and apply classroom knowledge and challenging for educators to develop authentic and engaging materials. In research methods and statistics courses in particular it can be…

Paltoglou, Aspasia E.; Morys-Carter, Wakefield L.; Davies, Emma L. – Psychology Learning and Teaching, 2019
Psychology students often feel anxious about learning statistics, which can impact their performance. However, little research has explored statistics confidence, which may be an important way to reduce the negative connotations of associating statistics with anxiety. We aimed to explore whether modifying an existing measure of statistics anxiety…
