Issues & Debates in Psychology
with Dr Steve Taylor, University of London & ShortCutstv
Issues & Debates is a key topic on both AQA & OCR & it’s also a great ‘transferable skill’.
This workshop uses an approach, developed over several years, that helps students’ with understanding, comparing, applying & evaluating Issues & Debates.
Clarifies the more difficult questions, such as:
• How can I illustrate the interaction between Nature & Nurture?
• What is Free Will/Determinism really about?
• When can & can’t Reductionism be used as a critique?
• What is Socially Sensitive Research?
• What is an ethical issue?
• And many more…
Exam guidance and practice for both specific questions & the opportunities for bringing Issues & Debates into a range of other questions.
Handouts summarise key up-to-date illustrative research studies.
