Abstract and Keywords

Psychology educators, whether they focus on teaching, research, practice, or some combination thereof, have an opportunity to shape the experience and outlook of undergraduate psychology students. To fulfill the promise of psychology education, and to provide students with the intellectual and professional benefits of the discipline, teachers need to adopt a framework for their efforts. This closing essay focuses on five areas of development emerging from the updated APA Guidelines for the Undergraduate Psychology Major Version 2.0 (2013), spheres of influence that will allow psychology educators to appropriately channel their efforts. For psychology instructors, these areas represent modest “marching orders” or concrete strategies for proceeding with the tasks of teaching and learning in high quality undergraduate programs.

Keywords: critical thinking, scientific literacy, psychological literacy, communication, ethics, diversity, professional development
