Introduction

In 2011 the General Assembly of EFPA decided to found a Board of Educational Affairs. EFPA president Robert Roe described the assignment in his presentation at the Board’s first meeting as follows:

  • “EFPA needs a permanent body (‘Board’) that will monitor and assess developments in the teaching of psychology, develop standards, and give advice on issues of concern to students and teachers.
  • The focus shall be on the academic education of psychology at all levels (BA, MA, PhD, post-graduate), but the teaching of psychology to other professions and the general public shall also be included.”
