Teaching Psychology in Europe
Are you a teacher of psychology? This is a questionnaire for teachers of psychology. It is distributed in European countries that have psychology on sub-university levels. By participating, you will contribute to important knowledge on teaching the subject of psychology.

The aim of this survey is to obtain new knowledge about psychology as a teaching subject and what it is like to be a psychology teacher. The survey aims to provide answers on how teaching psychology, the content of the subject psychology and the experience of the subject of psychology can appear in different countries. The ambition is also to gather knowledge about how the subject plays a role in more overarching abilities in education. Towards the end of the questionnaire there is room for you to comment and tell your story, if you wish, about how exactly you became a psychology teacher and how you experience it.

IMPORTANT! Optional language! The questions and the pre-printed response options in the questionnaire are available in English or Swedish (make your choice on this page in the upper right corner before you start). In the open-ended questions the language is optional, and you can state your answers in any (European) language! Chose a language that works well for you.

All participation is of course voluntary, and all information is treated completely confidentially and in line with ethical guidelines. By participating, you accept that the information you provide may be used for research purposes. The survey intends to explore many aspects of the topic and is therefore comprehensive. We expect that you will need at least 20 - 30 minutes to complete the questionnaire
