Get Involved in STP!

If you’re an STP member interested in becoming more involved in STP activities then you’ve come to the right place. STP is committed to providing opportunities to as many of its members as possible to participate in STP initiatives. Whenever there’s a committee, taskforce, or working group vacancy, this will be one of the places where the vacancy is announced. In the meantime, here’s a partial list of executive committee members and their areas of responsibilities. If you click on each name, you’ll be directed to that person’s email address. Even if there is no current vacancy, you should feel free to contact one or more of these individuals to express your interest in serving on a specific committee. If you’re a nonmember visitor to this site and are interested in getting involved with STP, then by all means return to the homepage and submit your membership application online. We welcome anyone interested in the teaching of psychology.

Current Service Opportunities

Call for Moderators: PsychTeacher Listserv 

STP is seeking new moderators for the PsychTeacher listserv. Duties of these positions include checking for listserv messages periodically during the day, reviewing submitted messages in rotation with other moderators, applying the listserv rules to proposed postings, and approving or rejecting messages according to the rules. Listserv rules and conduct guidelines are posted at http://teachpsych.org/news/psychteacher.php and http://teachpsych.org/Default.aspx?pageId=1565222. Online training will be provided.

Moderators may receive between zero and, perhaps, five messages per day, some requiring a reply to the sender stating the reason(s) for rejection and suggestions for changes that would permit posting to the listserv. Maximum time commitment would be about 10 to 15 minutes per day.

Applicants should be STP members and send a letter of interest and a CV to the chair of the Membership Communication Committee, Anna Ropp at mailto:aropp@msudenver.edu. Deadline for applications is November 20, 2016. Questions may be addressed to Ted Bosack at mailto:stp@teachpsych.org or Anna Ropp at aropp@msudenver.edu.

Seeking moderators for STP's Diversity-Teach Listserv

 The Diversity Committee is looking for 1-2 volunteers to help with moderating the Diversity-Teach Listserv. As moderator, volunteers would help approve or reject listserv generated messages. Each new message will be sent to one of three moderators. Moderators will review the message’s content to ensure it complies with the APA’s Listserv server rules. If you’re interested, please send a CV and statement of interest to Kathleen Keefe-Cooperman, the Chair of STP’s Diversity Committee, by October 1, 2016: kathleen.Keefe-Cooperman@liu.edu
