Building on the fruitful discussion from the JSC roundtable at the annual meeting last summer (http://www.ispp.org/jsc/blog/teaching-political-psychology), the JSC would like to continue it by inviting you to engage as well. We propose a conversation about experiences, pedagogies, and strategies for scholars interested in teaching political psychology classes. What are your ideas about teaching political psychology in undergraduate and graduate classes?
At the annual meeting last summer in Herzliya, Israel, the Junior Scholars Committee (JSC) hosted two roundtables that were well-attended and greatly appreciated by those in attendance. The theme to one of this year’s roundtables was Teaching Political Psychology. Specific to the discussion were challenges in teaching political psychology to undergraduate and graduate students. Four invited speakers engaged the audience in a conversation about experiences, pedagogies, and strategies for emerging scholars interested in teaching political psychology classes. Richard R. Lau (Rutgers University), Christ’l De Landtsheer (University of Antwerp), Richard Herrmann (The Ohio State University) and Linda Tropp (University of Massachusetts Amherst) generously shared their experiences and advice. The goal of the roundtable was to generate awareness about resources, textbooks, and syllabi that do exist, as well as to brainstorm for solutions to unmet needs of political psychology pedagogy. Also focused on was how to integrate political psychology into the existing curriculum and how to recruit students for these courses. The following is a short summary of this JSC roundtable.
