THE TEACHING RESOURCES AWARD
Sponsored by the APA Education Directorate and PT@CC, the 2012 Teaching Resources Award aims to encourage sharing of instructional techniques that community college faculty have developed and used in face-to-face, hybrid, or online psychology classes. The committee is interested in receiving teaching activities, resources, presentation slides, or other materials, along with a brief description of the teaching resource, what class it is used in, what topic is covered, and evidence of its effectiveness.

The winning entries will be posted on the PT@CC website. An award of $400 will be given to the first place winner; $300 to the second place winner; $200 to the third place winner; and $50 each to two honorable mention winners. Certificates for all winners will be presented by PT@CC at the APA Annual Convention (http://www.apa.org/convention/index.aspx). Attendance at the convention is not required. Deadline: May 7, 2012
