Author's Response to Peer Commentary
Hartley, James
Psychology Teaching Review, v18 n1 p43-44 Spr 2012
This article presents the author's response to peer commentary on his article entitled "Reflections on 50 years of teaching psychology." The author is pleased that most of them share some of his concerns about the lack of progress in the teaching of psychology over the last 50 years, and he welcomes the fact that they then go on to raise individual points and discuss different ways forward. In this response to peer commentary, the author reiterates that in his article he sounded a warning about the idea that new informatiation technologies will save the day. He still thinks that they have the power to do things differently and perhaps more efficiently but he is not sure that they "always" improve student learning.
