Greetings! E-xcellence in Teaching is The Society for the Teaching of Psychology's monthly column of invited essays. Historically, it's been published on STP's electronic listserv and gathered into annual collections available from the STP e-books page (http://teachpsych.org/ebooks/index.php). Our primary function is to provide brief, thought-provoking, and insightful essays on the teaching of psychology. These address effective teaching at the high school, college, and graduate school levels in an engaging style, concentrating on applications. Instead of presenting data or findings from a novel empirical study, these invited articles present best practices, innovative ideas, and advice to inform and enrich the teaching of psychology.
To enable our members to share these essays more easily with their social media contacts, we're also now publishing them as blog posts here on the STP website. We hope you'll find these essays useful, and will share them with interested colleagues, students, and members of the public.
