A good mixture of explanation, discussion, activities, videos and exam practice. Above all else, I strive to help students understand the theories, evidence and fundamental ideas that underpin psychology. Lots of questions and answers. A strong emphasis on delivering excellent research methods and statistics lessons (since this module has suce a big effect on outcomes). Also keen to help students develop confidence in Bio-psychology and Issues and Debates since these run through all the exam papers. If it is your understanding that is the problem, I can probably help!
