Undergraduate Education In Psychology from the Author: Diane F. Halpern. "This book presents the findings and recommendations of the 2008 National Conference on Undergraduate Education in Psychology. For this conference, 80 psychologists and other academics charged with the task of designing the best possible future for undergraduate education in psychology spent a week at the University of Puget Sound during the summer of 2008. We met in working groups and plenary sessions in which ideas were debated and visions of quality programs in psychology were created. We envisioned a future for higher education in which change could be brought about in a sound, scientific way that would yield long-lasting positive benefits for all of the stakeholders. Conference participants were selected for their commitment to excellence in education in psychology, especially at the undergraduate level. We represented the full range of diversity in psychology, including participants from all levels of education, ranging from high school teachers to those who taught only graduate students. We were a racially diverse mix of early- and late-career psychologists from large and small institutions, including professional schools; from different areas of expertise within psychology; and including people with disabilities and knowledge about disabilities. We invite readers to respond to our call for action and to join with us in the redesign of undergraduate education in ways that can have positive and long-lasting effects on the millions of students worldwide who enroll in undergraduate psychology courses"--Introduction.

Constructing Undergraduate Psychology Curricula from the Author: Joseph A. Mayo. In teaching undergraduate psychology, both new and experienced instructors are eager to find ways to engage students in learning and generate excitement for the subject matter. At the same time, instructors must balance these objectives with the need to: align course content with APA-approved guidelines; integrate instructional strategies with authentic or "real-world" learning and assessment; and assess students' mastery of course content. This valuable instructional resource presents a framework for constructing undergraduate psychology curricula to meet all of these objectives, while ensuring maximum flexibility across faculty, student, and institutional differences. Promoting active and enduring learning within a constructivist educational context, this book links successful teaching practices to five APA-approved learning goals-knowledge base of psychology, research methods, critical thinking skills, application of psychology, and values-and the behaviorally stated outcomes associated with each. Notably, this book demonstrates how to effectively gauge students' academic progress from the introductory psychology course through completion of the baccalaureate degree. This authoritative volume will appeal widely to psychology educators-including high school teachers and undergraduate faculty from 2-year, 4-year, and university settings-who are committed to instructional innovation and improvement. Educators and their students will benefit from this systematic approach to course and program evaluation that integrates teaching, learning, and assessment in clearly identified and measurable terms.
