This was the first time that AMLaP was held in Eastern Europe. Dr Scheepers’s keynote was entitled “What’s the syntax behind syntactic priming?”, offering new theoretical perspectives on prominent findings from the structural priming literature.

Dr Tracy Riley -

In this lunchtime session, I will share my reflections as Dean, Research at Massey University, a pan-University role which follows many years teaching and researching in gifted education. What I am discovering is that many of the characteristics we see in gifted kids - curiosity, creativity, motivation, high levels of intelligence - make their way into graduate school, alongside social and emotional traits like perfectionism, imposter syndrome, overexcitabilities and deep sensitivities. Using what I know about gifted, I am working to refresh our support for students and supervisors with a range of new initiatives - thesis writing boot camps, Strengths@Massey, Scholars@Massey, supervisor accreditation, the Dean’s List of Exceptional Theses Inaugural Lectures, and funding support for conferences and dissemination of research. While many of these are ideas developed from international contexts, a central theme that runs through each one is an acknowledgement of the need for gifted people to develop a sense of identity and belonging by engaging with like-minded peers.
Psychology at the University of Glasgow is rated very highly for research and teaching.
In the 2014 UK Research Excellence Framework, Psychology at Glasgow was ranked #1 in research intensity (jointly with UCL) according to the Times Higher Education. We earned the highest grade possible (4*) for a very high proportion (44%) of research. For teaching, we are consistently ranked 1st in Scotland and in the top 5 in the UK in national league tables, such as #2 in the 2015 Guardian Universities Guide.
The Subject Area of Psychology spans two colleges:

-  the College of Science
   and Engineering

-  the College of Medical,
    Veterinary and Life Sciences
