Abstract and Keywords

Teaching neuroscience can be a challenging undertaking for many reasons inherent in the nature of the subject itself—neuroscience is interdisciplinary, fact-dense, broad, spans many levels, constantly changing, and may not necessarily be seen as relevant by some psychology students. This chapter makes some suggestions for ways to confront those challenges, identifies some useful relevant resources, and highlights factors to consider when designing a neuroscience course and integrating neuroscience into existing psychology courses.

Keywords: teaching neuroscience, biological psychology, neuroeducation, laboratory instruction, backward design, student engagement
