"Project Psychology": A Classroom Competition
Fleck, Bethany K. B.; Hussey, Heather D.
Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, v20 n4 p55-72 2009
The authors describe an original and unique series of classroom group-work activities organized as a competitive game called "Project Psychology," which was implemented in an Introduction to Psychology course. The project goals included increasing student participation, interest, content comprehension, and motivation. Fostering connections to students' "culture" has been described as a core competency for college teaching and was of special importance. Students' responses to an open-ended set of optional course evaluation questions provided evidence for the effectiveness of the project. (Contains 1 table and 3 figures.)
