A Learning and Teaching Support Network (LTSN) for Psychology sponsored workshop was held in April 2003 to discuss issues related to the research, teaching and learning of psychology in Wales. Representatives of a number of psychology departments from Welsh Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) attended the workshop. This introductory paper presents an overview of the current teaching of psychology in Welsh higher education: the departments, the research being carried out and the unique political context in which Welsh HE currently finds itself.Following this introduction are articles from Enlli Thomas who discusses the problems associated with attempting to teach psychology in Welsh; Paul Sander who reports on the problems associated with teaching increasing numbers of students; Lance Workman who reports on the differing and changing, self-perceptions of old and new university students; and finally Ray Crozier, who presents a study that explores shy students' views on seminars.
