Get Involved in STP!

If you’re an STP member interested in becoming more involved in STP activities then you’ve come to the right place. STP is committed to providing opportunities to as many of its members as possible to participate in STP initiatives. Whenever there’s a committee, taskforce, or working group vacancy, this will be one of the places where the vacancy is announced. In the meantime, here’s a partial list of executive committee members and their areas of responsibilities. If you click on each name, you’ll be directed to that person’s email address. Even if there is no current vacancy, you should feel free to contact one or more of these individuals to express your interest in serving on a specific committee. If you’re a nonmember visitor to this site and are interested in getting involved with STP, then by all means return to the homepage and submit your membership application online. We welcome anyone interested in the teaching of psychology. STP encourages nominations from colleagues who are from underrepresented groups and have diverse backgrounds and experiences.

Current Service Opportunities

Call for Moderators: PsychTeacher Listserv

STP is seeking new moderators for the PsychTeacher listserv. Duties of these positions include checking for listserv messages periodically during the day, reviewing submitted messages in rotation with other moderators, applying the listserv rules to proposed postings, and approving or rejecting messages according to the listserv rules and conduct guidelines posted at https://teachpsych.org/page-1565222. Online training will be provided.

Moderators may receive between zero and, perhaps, five messages per day, some requiring a reply to the sender stating the reason(s) for rejection and suggestions for changes that would permit posting to the listserv. Maximum time commitment would be about 10 to 15 minutes per day.

Applicants should be STP members and send a letter of interest and a CV to the chair of the Membership Communication Committee, Anna Ropp at aropp@msudenver.edu. Deadline for applications is December 8, 2017. Questions may be addressed to Ted Bosack at stp@teachpsych.org or Anna Ropp at aropp@msudenver.edu.
