About TOPNEWS-Online

The Society for the Teaching of Psychology (STP) established TOPNEWS, an electronic announcement list, in October 1998. The name of this newsletter was changed to TOPNEWS-Online in March, 2000 to distinguish it from other publications by STP. TOPNEWS-Online is used to make monthly announcements about issues and events relevant to the teaching of psychology. Beginning in early 2016, TOPNEWS-Online is now the Society's official newsletter, replacing the twice-a-year publication of the Society's previous newsletter.
