I’m writing with a few updates on the STP website: http://teachpsych.org.
Job board. In the last 6 months a lot of job postings have come through on PsychTeacher. I’m pretty happy to see enough of an uptick in the economy that institutions are hiring again! While you can certainly still post job ads to PsychTeacher, we’ve created a spot on the STP website where STP members can post job ads and everyone, not just STP members, can read them – all in one place. On the STP website, you can find them under “News” in the main menu at the top of the page. If you are posting a job ad, log into the STP website, and you’ll automatically be granted permission to post. The STP executive director, Ted Bosack, will check in on the job board periodically to keep it cleaned up so only the current job ads are there.
If you’re not an STP member, please join. It’s only $25/year, and, no, you don’t have to be a member of APA to be a member of STP. Isn’t PsychTeacher alone worth 50 cents a week?
The STP Executive Committee wants to hear your comments and suggestions. We have created a new page titled – get this -- “Comments and Suggestions.” You can find it under “About” in the main menu. If you have ideas on how we can better serve you, please leave your comments and your suggestions. (On a personal note, please visit this page at least once. It took me an hour to figure out the scripting that would allow form responses to be emailed to both STP’s executive director and president. I’d really appreciate if at least a few people filled out the form so that I can feel like it was an hour well spent. Thanks!) (Side note for the ultra-geeks: If you want to know how to make this work with Google Forms, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.)
Also, but less significantly, we deleted “Leadership” from the main menu on the STP website. Everything that used to be there can now be found under “About”.
If you have questions or comments, say, about these changes, you can email me off list – or, hey, here’s an idea! You can visit the new “Comments and Suggestions” form: http://teachpsych.org/Default.aspx?pageId=1779988
Your STP Vice President for Resources,
