Green, Heather J.; Hood, Michelle
Psychology Learning and Teaching, v12 n2 p168-178 Jun 2013

Epistemological beliefs arguably have particular relevance in the discipline and profession of psychology, due to an emphasis on integration of knowledge from multiple theoretical perspectives. This article provides an overview of peer-reviewed literature in this area and suggests implications and directions for teaching and learning of psychology, with particular reference to the higher education context.
