How UCL uses Gorilla to trans­form their psy­chol­o­gy syllabus

Uni­ver­si­ty Col­lege Lon­don lets first year stu­dents do “real science”

The psy­chol­o­gy depart­ment at UCL recent­ly ranked first in the world sub­ject rank­ings and num­ber one in the world for teach­ing (2018 Times High­er Edu­ca­tion Sub­ject Rankings).

We spoke to Dan Richard­son, senior psy­chol­o­gy lec­tur­er at UCL. He believes these results are down to a new, inno­v­a­tive approach to research embed­ded teach­ing – thanks to Gorilla.

“We sub­mit­ted three first-year stu­dent posters to a psy­chol­o­gy con­fer­ence,” says Dan. “We were chuffed when all were peer reviewed and accept­ed for presentation.”
