If you email Jacqui Taylor, Bournemouth University, UK [], she will send you the template to complete (case studies are around 3 pages long so not too onerous!).

Please contact us before 31st October with your intention to submit. Final submissions are due 31st December. The resulting Compendium will be uploaded to the website and will form the basis of a publication and a Symposium to be presented at the EuroPLAT Conference in Austria, September 2017.

Translating Research to Improve the Teaching of Psychological Science: Request for Proposals

A NEW INITIATIVE: Psychological science often suggests promising principles that may improve learning. However, many of these findings have not been translated to educational contexts or designed into easy-to-implement teaching interventions. A new grant program from the APS Fund for Teaching and Public Understanding of Psychological Science encourages the development of evidence-demonstrated interventions that apply well-established principles to improve the teaching of psychological science. The objective is to extend the validity of research from controlled contexts to naturalistic post-secondary learning environments, to determine the necessary conditions for interventions to succeed, and ultimately to design the strategies needed for others to implement successful interventions in their own teaching contexts.

6th International Conference on Psychology Education, August 3-5, 2014, Flagstaff, USA

The 6th International Conference on Psychology Education (ICOPE6) will be in beautiful northern Arizona near the magnificent Grand Canyon from August 3-5, 2014. The goal of the conference is to connect those who teach psychology in undergraduate and graduate/post graduate programs around the world with colleagues within the U.S. as we continue to internationalize the discipline. Keynote speakers from around the world will share their experiences and ideas. Building on past conferences, the theme for this conference is "Psychological Literacy around the World: Teaching, Learning Design, and Assessment." The conference will feature (a) research on the application of psychological principles to enhancing student learning in the university setting, (b) developments in the internationalization of psychology curricula and education in psychology across the world, and (c) discussions about the meaning of psychological literacy from global perspectives.
