A-Level Student Conference & Competition
This event is designed to engage students and their teachers in a collaborative partnership to enhance students’ understanding of psychological research. This a two day event. Students visit us in June and participate in short psychology lectures on a range of topics including a session on research design. Students then design, run and write up their own research project linked to one of the topics. In July, students return to Keele and present their research findings to academic staff. Students who are judged to have run the best project have their research project published in JADE, Keele University's journal. Helen Ansell, a psychology teacher at the Chetwynd Centre states:
“My colleagues and I firmly believe that the students have learned a lot from this task and this will make A2 research methods so much easier. We are extremely proud of our students and must offer our heartfelt thanks fo Keele University. We look forward to further collaboration next year.”
This one day event is targeted at A-level Psychology teachers. It is designed to provide teachers with up-to-date information about important areas of research. We also cover topics such as teaching of research methods. Date TBC.
During the year, we have staff and students collecting data with children and young people as part of their research projects. If you would like to give your students the chance to get involved, please do not hesitate to contact us for further information.
