Teaching Current Directions

C. Nathan DeWall (University of Kentucky) and renowned textbook author and APS Fellow David G. Myers (Hope College) have created a series of Observer columns aimed at integrating cutting-edge psychological science into the classroom. Cindi May (College of Charleston) and Gil Einstein (Furman University) have recently joined them as contributing authors. Each column offers advice and how-to guidance about teaching an area of research that has been the focus of an article in the APS journal Current Directions in Psychological Science. Current Directions is a peer-reviewed, bi-monthly journal featuring reviews by leading experts in all aspects of scientific psychology. It helps readers stay apprised of important developments beyond their own areas of expertise, and it is written to be accessible to non-experts, making it ideally suited for use in the classroom.
