PLAT2010 was the fifth biennial Psychology Learning and Teaching conference organised by the Higher Education Academy Psychology Network. It took place from 30 June to 2 July, 2010 in the beautiful and historic city of Edinburgh, Scotland.
This international conference provided an exciting forum for the discussion and exchange of knowledge, practice and expertise on all aspects of psychology teaching, learning and assessment, at both the undergraduate and the postgraduate level. A social programme for those wishing to explore Edinburgh and its surroundings was also made available.
Given the current economic climate and changes in higher education involving statutory regulation and GBC status, a conference theme of 'Managing change within psychology education' for PLAT2010 was incorporated. With this in mind, submissions were welcomed that addressed this theme, in addition to the wide range of other psychology learning and teaching areas that could be selected when submitting proposals.
Submissions were invited that contributed to:
- good practice in psychology teaching, learning or assessment;
- theoretical debate relevant to psychology teaching and learning;
- facilitation of interchange between teaching staff, educational developers, researchers or policy makers.
Typical subjects for submission included:
- evaluation studies of teaching, learning or assessment practice;
- innovative developments including a clear rationale and evaluation;
- surveys of practice in relation to psychology education in HE;
- informed discussion of policy or strategic issues.
