Society for the Teaching of Psychology: Division 2 of the American Psychological Association

STP-APS Teaching Institute

The APS-STP Teaching Institute is held annually as a pre-conference to the regular conference of the Association for Psychological Science.  The teaching institute begins with a Wednesday evening workshop and continues all day Thursday with plenary and concurrent sessions on a host of topics relevant to the teaching of psychology.  The institute also includes an active and vibrant poster session. In addition, STP sponsors three talks during the regular convention.

APS supports and accommodations will be posted to the convention website soon, and will include infant feeding rooms, financial assistance (including for students), ASL interpreters, and a commitment to work with other requests.
