Teaching Slam, NITOP 2018
The National Institute on the Teaching of Psychology is an annual conference for teachers of psychology. NITOP is an independent, nonprofit, educational organization. The NITOP organizing committee (Robert Hendersen and Stephen Chew [Co-Chairs], Bridgette Martin Hard, Erin Hardin, and Beth Morling) invites distinguished speakers based on nominations from past participants, expertise in topics related to the teaching of psychology, and demonstrated skill in presenting. Presentations include workshops, concurrent sessions, and general sessions on topics of interest to psychology teachers at all levels, from high school through university. To assist these teachers in improving their effectiveness and enhancing their students’ learning, the Institute program offers content updates, new instructional techniques, and engaging activities.
NITOP encourages Institute participants to share their own research projects, course content ideas, innovative classroom techniques, and effective class activities at poster sessions, Participant Idea Exchanges, the Teaching Slam, and the Demo Demo session, as well as in informal discussions at meals and evening social events.
The 41st Institute begins on the morning of Thursday, January 3, with registration, a continental breakfast, and four workshops. It ends on Sunday, January 6, at 12:15 pm, following the closing session and the announcement of awards.
Three breakfasts and two lunches will be buffet style. The breakfasts will include traditional items such as eggs, French toast, breakfast meats, etc., as well as lighter items such as fresh fruit, cereals, and yogurt. The lunches will include traditional salad fixings plus prepared salads, soups, and special entrées. The reception on Wednesday evening will include complimentary wine and beer, a wide selection of appetizers, salad and pasta bars, and desserts.
