NITOP 2017 Participants
The National Institute on the Teaching of Psychology is an annual conference for teachers of psychology. The NITOP organizing committee (Robert Hendersen, Chair, Stephen Chew, Bridgette Martin Hard, Erin Hardin, and Beth Morling) invites distinguished psychology faculty for the program, based on nominations by past participants, expertise in topics related to teaching psychology, and demonstrated presentation skills. NITOP is an independent, nonprofit, educational organization.
Invited 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 updated content and new instructional techniques and classroom activities.
NITOP encourages Institute participants to share their own research projects, course content ideas, and innovative classroom techniques and activities with Institute faculty and other teachers at poster sessions, participant idea exchanges, and informal discussions at meals and evening get-togethers. The program for the 40th Institute begins on the morning of Wednesday, January 3, with registration, a continental breakfast, and workshops. It ends on Saturday, 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.
