By taking the Investigating Psychology 1 programme offered by The Open University, you will explore the different ways in which psychologists investigate the human mind and behaviour, and find out how psychological research addresses real-life issues with an opportunity to conduct a psychological study of your own.
You will be provided with two textbooks and access to a comprehensive website containing an online study guide, audio-visual material and interactive activities which are designed to help you develop your knowledge and skills.
Supporting study materials
The module is built around two textbooks, Investigating Psychology and Investigating Methods, and a website containing activities and audio-visual material that will form part of your core study time. There is also a booklet, Investigating Intelligence, which you will engage with in the first four weeks of the module. Throughout the module, you will be provided with an online study guide.
The online material will extend your understanding of the topics and issues discussed in the books in a number of ways, for example:
– the audio-visual material picks up on specific questions addressed in each chapter
– the interactive exercises will develop your understanding of the research methods used in psychology and will help you consolidate your understanding of key psychological concepts
– the online activities will help you develop the skills needed for your own learning.
