10th ANNUAL SPN ACTION TEACHING AWARD
(Deadline: January 31, 2015)
I’m writing to invite you to apply for this year’s Social Psychology Network award honoring excellence in “action teaching” — that is, teaching which not only leads to a better understanding of human behavior but to a more compassionate, sustainable, and peaceful world.
The award is open to all instructors — student teachers as well as long-time veterans of the classroom — regardless of learner level (K-12, high school, college, graduate level, or adult learners). Entries may include a student assignment, classroom activity, field experience, or web-based demonstration. For further details, please visit:
The prize is $1,000, and the winner will be invited to submit an article on the entry to the “Action Teaching” section of the Journal of Social and Political Psychology.
(Tip: Look at winning entries from prior years, archived at ActionTeaching.org, to see what information to include and how to format your entry.)
If you teach in a creative, socially engaged way, please consider applying for this award!
Best wishes for 2015,
Professor of Psychology
