Stark, Emily; Sachau, Daniel; Albertson, Dawn N.
Teaching of Psychology, v39 n1 p42-44 Jan 2012
The authors describe the development of a campus-based radio show about psychological science. The authors' goals in creating the show were to inform the public about the science of psychology and to create a teaching and learning resource for faculty members and students. The show, "Psychological Frontiers," airs twice a week and consists of 2-minute summaries of research and theory. Issues related to show format, medium, and script writing are discussed. The authors also present ways in which they have used this show as an activity in their courses as well as for faculty development. (Contains 1 table.)
