Welcome to the Society for the Teaching of Psychology (STP)
Welcome to STP! If you are looking for a community to support teaching and learning, you will find a devoted team in our organization. Here you also will find resources tied to classroom teaching, conferences, and grants, to name a few. Take a few minutes to explore the website for a wealth of information shared among teachers of psychology.
The primary goal of STP is found in our mission statement: “The Society for the Teaching of Psychology advances understanding of the discipline by promoting excellence in the teaching and learning of psychology.” During 2016, I hope to extend the mission beyond the traditional classroom and students. My primary initiative involves sharing psychology with the community. As dedicated teachers of psychology, we know the important role our discipline plays in quality of life, and we are uniquely capable of sharing psychology with others. We can improve our communities by teaching what we know.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve you as the president of our division. When I started teaching over 20 years ago, I never imagined there was a place where dedicated teachers supported each other and worked to enhance teaching and learning. Then I heard about STP and soon joined. What a difference this organization has made in my life, and by extension, my students’ lives. I hope you will find STP to be a valuable resource to keep your teaching vital, engage your students, participate in the SoTL revolution, and make good friends.
