Geiss, Paul Georg – Psychology Teaching Review, 2019
Psychological literacy has become a key concept for the teaching and learning of psychology in higher education and is a laudable goal of pre-tertiary psychology education. The widely used definition of McGovern and his colleagues enables a subject-specific contribution to liberal education. Nevertheless, this definition also includes general…

Taylor, J.; Salvagno, M.; Morris, R.; Hutchings, M.; Bobeva, M. – Psychology Teaching Review, 2018

Resilience, when coping with stress, can protect against serious negative life outcomes and lead to greater lifetime satisfaction.

Kantaris, Xenya – Psychology Teaching Review, 2018
Independent study can be satisfying and thrilling, and it can also be terrifying. Some students may not be equipped to handle the stress that University life puts in front of them. It is a fact that 75 per cent of adult mental health problems begin before the age of 18 (Davies, 2013) therefore, some students will enter University with a mental…

Short, Fay; Lloyd, Tracey – Psychology Teaching Review, 2017
Field trips can provide an opportunity to take the student to the world, as an alternative to presenting the world to the student in the classroom. Such trips can create a forum for exploring controversial and distressing topics by exposing the students to first-hand experience, rather than second-hand accounts: witnessing the effects of blind…

Werz, Janina; Buechner, Vanessa L. – Psychology Teaching Review, 2017
This study explores major-related life experiences (MRLE) of psychology and law students to examine the stereotype of the wounded psychology student.

Edwards, T.; Catling, J. C.; Parry, E. – Psychology Teaching Review, 2016
Adverse life experiences have been linked with a wide range of negative outcomes. However, despite being exposed to adversity, individuals who exhibit high levels of resilience appear to be less impacted by adversity, and continue to function normally. Using self-report measures and a sample of 161 participants aged between 16 and 21, the present…

Newstead, Stephen E. – Psychology Teaching Review, 2015
Despite the widespread use of the term psychological literacy, it is argued in this paper that it lacks a clear definition and empirical support. The claim that all psychology students possess psychological literacy in the sense of knowing the main ideas and concepts is relatively uncontroversial. However, the claim that they also possess a wide…

In this paper we outline the design, development, and delivery of an innovative course that employed an ecological framework to…

In this article, the author discusses how difficult it is for psychology college students to learn to write multiple disciplines of references. It is hard for students to understand why all details have to be written in the right order and the right type-style--depending upon which reference system is used. In this article, the author proposes…

Beaton, Susan J.; Forster, Peter M. – Psychology Teaching Review, 2013
A large proportion of students in higher education report feeling bored during lectures, for example, Mann and Robinson (2009) put this figure at 60 per cent. This short article reviews our experiences of using a simple, free Voice-over-Internet Protocol (VoIP) service, Skype, to enhance the interest and engagement of students by holding a…
