Applying psychology to the workplace

This course will begin with an introduction to Applied Psychology in work settings by taking a context based approach. Students will be introduced to the development of Applied Psychology and will then see how various psychological theories help our understanding of, and contribute to explaining, human behaviour in the workplace. We will look at the application of Psychology in the context of organisational behaviour, including leadership, working in groups, and employee motivation, satisfaction and wellbeing. There will be a different focus each week to enable greater depth of learning, and students will learn to recognise the multiple psychological perspectives that help our understanding of human behaviour in context.
