• “Teaching Outside the Box” – my TEDxUCO talk


    This past September, I was delighted to be part of a local TEDx event at the University of Central Oklahoma (where I’m a professor). I was asked to speak about my efforts over the past decade of teaching in higher education to change my course assignments from something meaningful to (typically) two people (the student and the professor) into something meaningful to people outside the academic setting as well.

    The short talk below highlights the work we’ve done to engage literally millions of people worldwide through the use of online textbooks about critical thinking and abnormal psychology, videos on pseudoscience and mental health case studies, and even¬†blog posts here on SIN…all created by students!

    If you are interested in implementing some of these ideas in courses you teach, or if you have other ideas about how we can help to increase the world’s store of evidence-based information via psychology classes, feel free to contact me!
