2019 ACT Pre-Conference Workshop: The Teaching of Psychology Incubator (TOPInc)

Leaders:  Garth Neufeld, R. Eric Landrum, Jane Halonen, Anna Ropp

The Society for the Teaching of Psychology announces the first Teaching of Psychology Incubator (TOPInc). Like a business incubator, TOPInc will help individuals develop and accelerate ideas they have for non-traditional scholarly impact. We invite all teachers of psychology to join us for this free pre-conference workshop.

TOPInc will allow a small group of registrants, who have ideas for things like starting conferences, blogs, social media presences, podcasts, books, articles, or resources related to teaching psychology, to sit down with experienced innovators who will share expertise in the following areas:

  • Generating and Building Ideas 
  • Articulating Purpose
  • Targeting Audience Project Promotion
  • Project Funding
  • Project Dissemination

  • Networking and Partnerships

  • Technology Basics (e.g., starting a website)

  • Mentoring and Advising

Whether ideas are at the very beginning, middle, or end of development, workshop mentors will help move innovators toward more defined and ultimately successful and sustainable plans for their projects.

Registrants will submit a 250-word update on the project by June 1, 2020.

TOPInc will take place at the ACT conference hotel on Thursday, October 17 , 2019 from 2pm- 5pm in the "Dodgeball" room (2nd floor). It is limited to the first 12 registrants who will work closely with TOPInc mentors. This year’s mentors are Jane Halonen, Eric Landrum, Garth Neufeld, and Anna Ropp.

If you are interested being a part of the Teaching of Psychology Incubator, please fill out this interest form by September 9, 2019.
