Lloyd, Steven A.; Shanks, Ryan A.; Lopatto, David – Teaching of Psychology, 2019
Undergraduate research (UR) is a high-impact practice associated with many positive student outcomes. However, extending UR opportunities to all students is not practical for all psychology programs. Classroom-based UR experiences (CUREs) provide a scalable solution to this problem, but there is a paucity of empirically validated, authentic CUREs…

Jakobsen, Krisztina V.; Daniel, David B. – Teaching of Psychology, 2019
Research on team-based learning (TBL) generally supports its effectiveness over "traditional" lecture. In practice, however, lecturing rarely consists of teachers exclusively talking at their students, as many incorporate a variety of strategies to encourage active processing. This study compared an interactive lecture style with TBL on…

Cavanaugh, Courtenay E. – Teaching of Psychology, 2019
Teachers of psychology have been called to both educate college students about interpersonal violence (e.g., sexual assault) and use service learning.
