Most SPSP members have or will have teaching-related responsibilities in social psychology or related specialties. The STP Teaching Preconference focuses on these responsibilities and ways to improve teaching based on best practices and findings from SoTL research. The Preconference provides programming supporting teaching at all levels (graduate students to senior faculty), emphasizes novel, empirically-supported techniques and content for teaching, provides opportunities for teachers to share effective practices, and addresses a wide variety of teaching issues and contexts. The goal of this preconference is for attendees to leave with specific, teaching-related ideas that can be implemented upon attendees’ return from the preconference. This preconference is appropriate for those at every professional level from novice instructors who might be building courses for the first time to veteran faculty who continue to update courses. This preconference has been held 17 straight years at SPSP, and attendees reliably consider it valuable and enjoyable.
