Several steering committee members recently represented GSTA at the on-site component of the Annual Conference on Teaching in Portland, OR. Along with colleagues, we shared posters, gave presentations, and hosted participant idea exchanges (PIEs). We also collaborated with the Early Career Psychologists (ECP) group and APA Publishing to welcome graduate students and early career attendees to a joint dinner event. We would like to congratulate all those responsible for such a successful event and express our gratitude to those who administer STP’s travel awards, as several members benefitted from STP graduate student travel grants.

Alexa Sacchi shares the poster “Sustaining Long-term High School Outreach Programs: Lessons Learned from the Summer Psychology Research Initiative (SPRINT).” Alexa and colleagues were also facilitators of the PIE “Sustaining Psychology Outreach Programs and EDI Initiatives.”

Will Rayo and faculty mentor Iván Carbajal  present “Cultivating Community and Belongingness: An Experiential Approach to Enhancing Engagement in the ‘Thinking Like a Psychological Scientist’ Course.” Both were facilitators of a PIE titled “Talking about Race: Pedagogy in a Psychology of Race and Racism Course,” and Will also presented the poster “Insights from Teaching a Synchronous Remote General Psychology Pilot Course after Students are Back to F2F Instruction,” authored with colleague Sydney Tran.

GSTA Chair, Skye Mendes accepts the 2023 Wilbert J. McKeachie Teaching Excellence Award. Skye also served as a panelist during the live taping of a PsychSessions podcast episode and presented the session “Designing for Learning: Scaffolding Effective Learning Strategies and Transparently Training Metacognitive Skills,” co-authored with four of her former undergraduate teaching assistants.
