06.12.2013

Psychology, HPU, Relationship Research, Sadie LederHIGH POINT, N.C., June 12, 2013 – Improving introductory psychology classes around the country is the goal of a new resource co-authored and co-edited by Dr. Sadie Leder, assistant professor of psychology and associate director of the Survey Research Center at High Point University. The online resource is titled, “Introductory Psychology Teaching Primer: A Guide for New Teachers of Psych 101.”

Approximately 1.7 million students take Introduction to Psychology each year. In light of the importance that this class plays in American education, the authors set forth to create a practical aid to help instructors identify learning objectives, assessments and activities to enhance their classroom experience.

“Introduction to Psychology is a challenging course to teach, as it asks instructors to cover a broad array of topics related to different areas of psychology,” says Leder. “This primer should help both novice and experienced teachers by identifying tangible resources that can be immediately accessed and easily implemented.”

This primer is available for free download through the Society for the Teaching of Psychology’s website: http://teachpsych.org/ebooks/intro2013/index.php.
