Fifteenth Annual Mid-Atlantic Teaching of Psychology (MATOP) Conference

The conference, Oct. 18, 2013, will feature workshops, lectures, networking and more.

The Prince George’s Community College Department of Psychology and Argosy University are sponsoring the 15th Annual MATOP Conference on the teaching of psychology on Oct. 18, 2013, at PGCC, just outside Washington, D.C. The mission of the MATOP Conference is to bring together teachers of psychology from universities, two- and four-year colleges and high schools who wish to enhance their teaching of psychology and expand their teaching skills through workshops, lectures and participant idea exchanges on successful teaching strategies and techniques. In addition, MATOP fosters the development of valuable teacher networks that further strengthen the continued support of good teaching and professional fellowship.
