Open Dialogue: Reflections on 50 Years of Teaching Psychology
Hartley, James
Psychology Teaching Review, v18 n1 p3-9 Spr 2012
There have been great changes in the numbers of students studying psychology at degree level in the UK since 1961--the year the author graduated. And, similarly there have been great changes in what is taught--with an ever-widening set of theoretical developments and practical applications. Nonetheless, despite these developments, the author argues that the teaching of psychology has not altered very much in its approach during the last 50 years. Lectures, tutorials, lab classes and essay-type examinations still dominate the timetable. In this article, the author shares his reflections on 50 years of teaching psychology. (Contains 9 footnotes.)
