Session Theme: Integrating Research Methods into the Undergraduate Curriculum

Session Chair:  Scott Hollenback, Waubonsee Community College and Midwestern Regional Vice President for Psi Beta

Psychology is a science!  We state it in our course objectives, but does your psychology curriculum represent an integrated approach to teaching research methods?

Panelists in this session will present and discuss how they have augmented their teaching of research principles and skills through guided and personally meaningful applications.  They will share the strategies they use to bring research methods into their classrooms and to get students involved in research process outside the classroom.
