Psychology Learning and Teaching

This publication aims to inform and encourage good practice in the teaching and learning of Psychology within Higher Education. It is circulated free to all lecturers in UK HE who wish to receive a copy, and in consequence its content is aimed at the general reader. It will primarily be a publication for practitioners, although naturally we wish to encourage the dialogue between research and practice. We see the journal as complementary to the existing journal of the BPS Division for Teachers and Researchers in Psychology, Psychology Teaching Review.

Structure and content - Psychology Learning and Teaching consists of three sections:
1. News and short reports

  • News of interesting developments
  • Factual reports on resources or methods relevant to teaching practice
  • Short case studies from departments or individuals
  • Other information from the editorial team, including digests of recent publications

2. Articles of general relevance to learning and teaching practice (peer reviewed)

  • Evaluation studies
  • Relevant literature reviews or conceptual developments

3. Reviews and letters

  • Reviews of books, software or other relevant resources
  • Letters and discussion.

Individual sections of each issue are available as PDF files (requiring Adobe Acrobat reader). The sections that are currently being made available are: the editorial, individual articles, individual reports, reviews and journal abstracts. The latest issue of the journal will appear here for download approximately 3 months after its general release.
