Welcome to the Society for the Teaching of Psychology (STP)
January 29, 2018
It is an honor to serve as the 2018 president for the Society for the Teaching of Psychology (STP).
If you are a member of STP then I know you’ll agree when I say this is the most dedicated group of psychology instructors that you could ever meet. I found my professional home in STP about 20 years ago, and it’s no accident that most of my professional service has been to this organization. It was through the resources STP provides and through the countless conversations about teaching we’ve had -- at conferences, through PsychTeacher, and more recently, through Facebook and Twitter – that have made me a better instructor.
Ready to get more involved in STP? Please visit our our Get Involved page (top menu, Membership à Get Involved).
If you are not a member of STP, but have found the resources and opportunities for conversations that STP provides have also made you a better Instructor, I invite you to give back to STP by joining us. Your $25/year helps us continue to help all of us become better at our craft.
If you have ideas on how STP can better serve you or if you’d like to just talk teaching, please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or visit with me at a conference. Later in 2018, you can find me at the EDUCAUSE Learning Institute (January), EPA (March), RMPA (April), WPA (May), BISTOPS ( July), the APA Convention (August), the Australian Psychological Society Congress (September), ACT (October), and GSTA CUNY Pedagogy Day (October).
Earlier this year I put out a call for task force volunteers. About 50 of you stepped forward to serve on these three task forces. Below are the members of those task forces. If you were not selected, don’t go anywhere. I may need your help before year is out.
I’m looking forward to working with you in 2018!
