Facebook group for issues in psychology

leave a comment »

I went to the HEA/BPS History & Philosophy of Psychology section annual conference, and delivered a session in the preceding workshop on teaching conceptual and historical issues in psychology. It occurred to me that there wasn’t really an online forum for sharing ideas, resources etc in the teaching of conceptual and historical issues, so I set up a Facebook group to hopefully act as such a forum. It’s an open group which anyone can join, check it out here:

From the group description:
“Back in the good old days the Higher Education Academy’s Psychology Network had a page for resources in Conceptual and Historical Issues in Psychology (CHIP). Unfortunately the Psychology Network fell victim to the cuts, and the page went with it. At a recent professional development day on teaching CHIP co-hosted by the BPS History & Philosophy of Psychology section and the HEA, there was a discussion of how the teaching of CHIP could be enhanced. Restoring the lost facility for sharing resources seemed useful, as did providing a forum to facilitate discussion. That is the purpose of this group. Feel free to join and lurk, ask questions, join discussions, share ideas, and post useful links or other resources.”
