Get inside the new core studies

main_img_psy.jpg

OCR have announced a series (well two) conferences which look quite exciting. A chance to meet some of the authors (Griffiths, Richer & Haslam) of studies in the new specification and more. These conferences are being held in Leeds and London so if you live anywhere near (or even if you don’t) you might want to get to the site and register your interest as tickets are limited and I would imagine in high demand. Best still this conference wont cost you a penny (and you get a free lunch too!)

OCR invites teachers of A Level Psychology to an informative and entertaining event for an insight into our revised Psychology A Level qualification, ahead of first teaching from September 2008.

As well as giving an overview of the new qualification this event will delve into some of the new core study material.

The keynote speakers are:

Professor Mark Griffiths (hear my interview with him here)
Professor of Gambling Studies, Nottingham Trent University

Professor Alexander Haslam
Professor of Social Psychology, Exeter University

Professor Stephen Reicher
Professor of Social Psychology, St Andrews University

The conferences are on the 30th (Leeds) and 31st (London) January. For more information on the conferences, speakers and programme for the day then pop over to the OCR Conference site. Hopefully I’ll get tickets so I might see you there.

    I went to this today and the speakers were excellent. Shame that OCR was pushing their spec so much though.

    Plus they decided to give us an outdated specification – tut tut!
