Psychology Teaching Review encourages research on teaching and learning in psychology, to serve as a vehicle for the sharing of good practice, and to improve the teaching of psychology at all levels. It carries articles on any aspects of teaching and learning in psychology, particularly those with a strong theoretical underpinning.
In this special issue, the contributors demonstrate a number of different forms that action research can take and described some stimulating and innovative approaches to the teaching of psychology. This issue shows that pedagogical action research has a role to play in both our policy and in our practice.
