In 2012-2013, approximately 114,000 undergraduate students graduated with a degree in psychology, making it the fourth most popular major in the United States. In addition to those students, there are high school, graduate and postgraduate students of psychology, instructors of psychology in high school, undergraduate departments and graduate school and laypeople interested in how psychological science is applied in school settings.
With such a large community, we wanted to provide a digital space for you to explore how psychological science helps us understand how people teach and learn and to find great resources, explore interests and create community. From this idea came our new blog, the Psych Learning Curve!
At its core, our blog is a social space and writers for this blog are both APA staff and outside bloggers who are excited to share their insights and expertise. We want to encourage you to not only read our posts, but share, comment, and ask questions. You can further engage by following us on Twitter and sharing posts you find interesting on your own social media platforms.
To best navigate our blog, we’ve organized topics by reader.
If you’re a teacher of undergrad psychology, you can select your specific grade range by selecting the “teacher” tab. The student tab is also segmented by grade range. On our homepage, you’ll find our newest and most popular content.
