Careers in Psychology: Creating Customized Learning to Expose the Invisible Curriculum
Case, Kim A.; Miller, Angela; Hensley, Rachel; Jackson, Shaprie
Psychology Learning and Teaching, v13 n1 p32-37 Mar 2014
Invisible knowledge or the hidden curriculum, the informal education some students get from faculty mentors, is a privilege not afforded to all students. Many universities have instituted psychology careers courses to assist undergraduate psychology students with academic and career advisement. Designed to share this invisible curriculum with all psychology majors, the Careers in Psychology course introduced here is a one-credit online class required for all majors. The course involves a high level of student engagement through interactive activities, customized curriculum to individual career goals, videos of guest speakers, online discussions, and professional development assignments. Feedback from formal student evaluations and student reflections about the careers course suggest students gained valuable professional skills and mentoring.
