The inaugural Biennial International Seminar on the Teaching of Psychological Science (BISTOPS) will take place on July 9 through 13, 2018 in Paris at Maison Suger, the Fondation Maison des Sciences de l’Homme’s residential and working facility.
The English language seminar is designed to give around 20 participants the opportunity to discuss existing research on the scholarship of teaching and learning in psychology, to exchange new research ideas, to create collaborative international research teams, and ultimately to generate published empirical studies whose results will promote evidence-based recommendations for improving the teaching of psychological science on an international scale.
Four of the five days will include a speaker presentation followed by group discussion and brainstorming about the research that has been done—and that still needs to be done—on that day’s topic. The fifth day will feature participant research posters and two or three 30-minute presentations on recent and/or planned research by selected participants.
To request further information or to apply for a place at the inaugural seminar, please contact Douglas Bernstein. The deadline for completed applications is January 15, 2018. Information will be available online soon.
