Second annual GP CTOP set for October at The U
"This is a great opportunity for professionals and students to meet and interact with other professionals and improve their teaching," said Professor Amy Schweinle, Ph.D. "While the conference was originally created for psychology, many of the topics are relevant for instructors across disciplines."
Loreto R. Prieto, Ph.D., a professor of psychology and director of U.S. Latino Studies at Iowa State University, will provide the keynote address. Prieto will discuss suggestions on how to handle diversity topics in the classroom as well as ways to conceptualize reasons why these discussions can be sensitive. In addition to Prieto’s address, GP-CTOP includes roundtable discussions, presentations on subjects such as innovative pedagogy, research and teaching, and teaching with technology.
Last year, professors and teachers from across the United States attended the inaugural conference at USD. With funding provided by a grant from the American Psychological Society Fund for Teaching and Public Understanding of Psychological Science, GP-CTOP was developed by USD professors Doug Peterson, Ph.D., and Schweinle as a way for psychology instructors in K-12, community colleges and four-year institutions to introduce novel approaches to teaching, create a network of cooperation and collaboration, and disseminate ideas.
