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.

Griggs, Richard A.; Bartels, Jared M. – Psychology Teaching Review, 2019
Although the Stanford Prison Experiment (SPE) has been challenged on methodological, theoretical, and ethical grounds, these criticisms have been largely ignored by teachers and textbook authors. Recent revelations arising from an analysis of the SPE archival materials, however, not only strongly support these past criticisms but also question the…

Skipper, Yvonne – Psychology Teaching Review, 2019
Encouraging students to 'believe that they can achieve' is a central element to teaching. The belief that it is one's efforts and techniques, rather than one's innate abilities which lead to success has a positive impact on learning behaviours. As such, Yvonne Skipper strives to promote this malleable view of intelligence (or growth mindset) in…

Identifying a 'promising' topic for a psychology dissertation is widely recognised as one of the most important, challenging, and stressful parts of the research process.

Penn, P. R.; Wells, I. G. – Psychology Teaching Review, 2018
There is a wealth of literature that attests to the benefits of retrieval practice in the long term retention of academic material (see Roediger & Butler, 2011 for a review). Unfortunately, there is also evidence indicating that students rarely report using this method of study (e.g. Karpicke, Butler, Roediger, 2009). The authors have piloted…

Higher education institutions want to develop rounded, independent learners equipped with the required skills to embrace the challenges of post-graduation (European Commission, 2013).

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…

Farrell, Derek; Taylor, Charlotte – Psychology Teaching Review, 2017
This article addresses the global burden of psychological trauma caused by both natural disasters and wars. Trauma and traumatic stress exact a human and socio-economic toll that is vast in its magnitude and immense in its consequences. Given the massive prevalence of trauma, this then raises an important pedagogic question: how do you educate and…

This paper describes the development and delivery of an innovative approach to teaching qualitative research methods in psychology.
