Eastern Conference on the Teaching of Psychology

The Department of Psychology at James Madison University will host the next Eastern Conference on the Teaching of Psychology (ETOP) on Friday, June 24 and Saturday, June 25, 2011. The conference will be held at the historic Stonewall Jackson Hotel and Conference Center in Staunton, Virginia. All participants are invited to submit proposals for the concurrent sessions or poster session. Proposals received by March 1, 2011 will be considered for the program. Submissions must be related to the teaching of psychology, including but not limited to teaching techniques, demonstrations or activities for teaching a particular topic or course, effective uses of technology, assessment strategies, etc. We are particularly interested in proposals that describe innovative practices and include some type of empirical assessment of their effectiveness.
