My name is Ian Wells. I am a psychologist working at the University of East London School of Psychology.

This site is intended to allow me to share some of the resources I use in teaching a level 1 undergraduate module (PY1105, ‘Thinking Like a Psychologist’)

Others might recognise the module as teaching ‘critical thinking’, but as far as possible I’ve tried to avoid using this phrase and prefer the term ‘rational thinking’.

Where possible I try to give students examples from the media, and use those examples to illustrate the application of  ‘rational thinking’.
