Current State of History of Psychology Teaching and Education in Argentina: An Empirical Bibliometric Investigation
Fierro, Catriel; Ostrovsky, Ana Elisa; Di Doménico, María Cristina
Teaching of Psychology, v45 n2 p132-145 Apr 2018
This study is an empirical analysis of the field's current state in Argentinian universities. Bibliometric parameters were used to retrieve the total listed texts (N = 797) of eight undergraduate history courses' syllabi from Argentina's most populated public university psychology programs. Then, professors in charge of the selected courses (N = 7) were interviewed regarding the structure, procedure, and instructional strategies of their courses. Results showed predominance of works produced by Argentinian scholars and secondary sources. Syllabi showed limited incorporation of primary sources, recent research papers, and certain psychological schools. The pervasive presence of infrastructural constraints and lecture-based instruction are seen as limitations that should be collectively debated and addressed by courses' faculty.
