APEC level 4 option
This is the entry page for web pages related to my level 4 course "APEC" or
"Applying psychology to education and computers".
This page will be restructured, but at the moment you can refer to the old
pages for similar material as it was taught in two different options last
I'd be grateful if you filled in the online course evaluation form for the
APEC level 4 module, just finished.
You can get at it by going to the dept. website,
and the teaching page for level 4:
and clicking on the link fairly near the top labelled
"Click here to fill in the course evaluation"
You will then find a particular (level 4) lecturer pictured.
Just flip through until you find me and my module (!) by using:
"If you already gave us your evaluation on this lecture, you can skip this page
by clicking here. "
The lectures given followed the handbook pretty closely in content, but
in a different order. Here is the number of that lecture specification in the
handbook, followed by the order they were given in (in 2002-3). The lectures
were all double lectures (2 hours together, once a week). The first week's
session was missed; and replaced by an extra 2-hour session in week 1 of term
The numbers shown usually appeared on the handouts themselves. As you
can see, there are some glitches in the numbering.
