How can knowledge of psychology help you to be a better manager, employee or employer? Do you know how organisations select employees? Or the best way to keep motivated at work? How can you reduce workplace stress? This course will examine the ways that industrial and organisational psychology is applied in the workplace. The course uses a variety of media including online quizzes, videotaped lectures and interviews, websites, videos and case studies. We examine researched methods to improve employee well-being and organisational productivity in areas such as recruitment and selection, training, leadership, motivating employees, occupational stress, managing performance, job analysis and design.

Note: This course is taught entirely online using the e-learning Moodle site (, although the final exam may be conducted on campus.
