Welcome to the Society for the Teaching of Psychology (STP/APA Division 2)
On behalf of the Executive Committee and the several dozen other colleagues who serve on the leadership team, welcome to the Society for the Teaching of Psychology (STP) website. STP is Division 2 (Teaching of Psychology) of the American Psychological Association (APA). Our membership includes APA members and nonmembers. We are teachers of psychology at two-year and four-year colleges, universities, and secondary schools. We have many current graduate students and early career psychologists in our ranks as well as others who join STP for a variety of reasons.
Please explore our website to learn about STP resources and services. From the OTRP link, you will find model course syllabi and other teaching resources; from the Conferences link, you will access information about e-workshops and Best Practices conferences as well as about other conferences and programs with which STP is associated; from the E-books link, you can download material from more than two dozen books on teaching-related topics. Also, you are just a click away from accessing information about STP’s journal Teaching of Psychology, the STP blog and STP facebook group, the PsychTeacher listserv and Diversity-teach listserv, the teaching of psychology idea exchange (ToPix). Also click on awards to learn about STP sponsored awards and funding opportunities.
If you are not a member of STP, but you are interested in the teaching of psychology, click on the Membership tab to learn about our Member Benefits and for details on how to join the society. The low cost of membership includes a subscription to Teaching of Psychology as well as receipt of the STP Newsletter. In addition, graduate students and early career psychologists will have much to benefit from membership. Two domains within the society, the Graduate Student Teaching Association and the Early Career Psychologist Council, focus specifically on the interests and needs of these groups.
Please contact me if you have any questions, suggestions, or comments about STP or about our website.
