Abstract [en]

Research methods is often considered one of the more challenging subjects to teach (and learn), yet it is arguably the most important; to equip students with the skills to carry out their own research is a fundamental aspect of many psychology courses. The issues raised by qualitative research methods teaching in particular – differing epistemologies, challenging ‘objectivity’ and alternative validation practices – pose further challenges for students. In this article, we report on a project that applies problem-based learning (PBL) principles to qualitative research methods teaching. PBL has already been effectively used in many other disciplines as a way to encourage student autonomy within the learning process and to deepen understanding of key issues, and there is a huge potential for its application within research methods teaching. We report on each stage of the project: a review of PBL and research methods teaching literature, a preliminary survey of current PBL use in UK psychology departments, and an outline of the drafted PBL materials.
