This ground–breaking book is the first to address the learning and teaching issues associated with psychology in Higher Education.   The chapters provide suggestions and support for some of the most challenging areas of psychology teaching, including the teaching of research methods and statistics, effective supervision of research projects, management of online learning, and other key issues associated with teaching both undergraduate and postgraduate students.

Using the latest research in teaching and learning and drawing upon the experiences and skills of key people in the field, Teaching Psychology in Higher Education presents effective, evidence–based practice and advice that will be invaluable for both experienced and new lecturers.
