School of Psychology looks into new online module



The School of Psychology is pleased to announce that Global Psychology is a newly proposed online module that will cover the psychological implications of globalisation and cross-cultural aspects of mainstream psychology research. Areas of focus are likely to include family, language, education, work, health and technology. We hope that this will complement the current syllabus for psychology students and provide an appealing point of access to our discipline for students taking other courses.

The project is being led by Dr Marc Archer (UNMC), Dr Nicola Pitchford (UNUK), and Dr Margaret Dowens (UNNC) over the coming year with a £10K grant from the Teaching and Learning Board.  As the module will be delivered online a key element of the project is to explore and devise innovative delivery and assessment formats.  If approved, this will be the first time a psychology module is made available to students at the China campus.

A series of focus groups with diverse sets of UNMC students found great enthusiasm for the proposed module and yielded useful ideas and directions. An online survey to gauge attitudes and interest in the module will be conducted soon. If you have any questions, thoughts, or would like to know more about the module please contact Eisya Azman at
