APS-David Myers Distinguished Lecture on the Science and Craft of Teaching Psychological Science

Don’t SoTL for Less: Researching Teaching and Learning for a Post Pandemic World

Thursday, May 27, 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EDT (-4 UTC)

Regan A.R. Gurung

Oregon State University, USA

Research on teaching and learning takes many forms and is conducted by many. In the 30 years since the phrase Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) was coined, it has undergone many changes and goes by different names. In this session I will provide a contemporary picture of SoTL from within the psychological sciences, overview a process model to guide SoTL, review significant challenges for the practice, and directions for the future. I highlight the particular importance of SoTL in preparing for the new normal of a post-pandemic higher education environment. See a preview of Regan A.R. Gurung’s talk.

BIPOC Mental Health, Social Justice and COVID-19: This Moment Requires Authenticity

Thursday, May 27, 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM EDT (-4 UTC)

The impact of both the COVID-19 pandemic and the continuing fight for racial justice on communities of Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) has led to rising rates of mental illness and unmet need. Given the current and future impacts of the trauma resulting from the dual pandemic, BIPOC of all ages are at a critical juncture regarding mental health. This keynote talk focuses on the innovative work of the AAKOMA Project with a discussion of the precursors to the mental health disparities faced by BIPOC communities and illustrations of how AAKOMA is leading work that can inform psychologists’ engagement as partners in communities to influence positive change in our health care and social service sector. Alfiee Breland-Noble will be live in the text chat during the session to answer your questions.

Teaching Session

Go Viral: 9 Pandemic Examples That Teach Psychological Science

Thursday, May 27, 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM EDT (-4 UTC)

The pandemic is an ongoing science lesson, much of which pertains directly to psychological science and has implications for courses across the curriculum. From probability to data visualization to science communication to misinformation, there are scores of examples that elucidate psychological science. This presentation will explore nine of them. Susan A. Nolan will be live in the text chat during the session to answer your questions.
