In the Demo Demo, great instructors will micro-teach their favorite class demonstrations—original, ready-to-use demos and new twists on old favorites. Get a ready-to-use new class demonstration or experience an old favorite in a new way.
PIEs will offer participants the opportunity to share teaching ideas in a roundtable format. (See picture above from NITOP 2018.) Each of these sessions will include about 20 discussion topics, hosted by Institute participants whose proposals were approved in the review process. Hosts will lead informal, one-hour discussions of those topics at specifically designated round tables. Following a short presentation by the host, participants at the table will be invited to discuss their own ideas on that topic. Participants often move among tables and are free to switch to a different discussion at any time.
Poster Sessions will showcase presentations by Institute participants on topics related to the teaching of psychology. The following NITOP poster awards will be announced at the closing session. The winners (the first author in the case of multiply-authored posters) will receive a certificate, a check for $250, and one complimentary registration for a future NITOP. The poster awards are judged by the NITOP Organizing Committee and the Institute Faculty.
In the Teaching Slam, a fast-paced, dynamic session, multiple speakers will share their best teaching tip, assessment idea, or class activity. You will get fresh ideas to use in your class right away.
