Abstract and Keywords

Teaching is essential within the discipline of psychology and virtually all psychologists engage in this activity, either formally or informally. Psychologists who spend their careers in postsecondary settings have an obligation to their students, institution, the discipline and profession, and themselves to continue to improve their teaching skills. The essays in this Handbook provide a variety of pedagogical resources that can inform the work of novice, mid-career, and veteran psychology teachers. Psychology teachers are encouraged to take note of some key themes represented in the Handbook’s essays, including student learning, faculty development, attention to diversity, the scholarship of teaching and learning, assessment issues, and psychological literacy. Psychology teachers are urged to continue to refine their teaching prowess and to try pedagogical innovations across the arc of their careers.

Keywords: assessment, diversity, faculty development, psychological literacy, scholarship of teaching and learning (SOTL), student learning outcomes
