PT@CC Teaching Resources Award Winners

The APA Committee of Psychology Teachers at Community Colleges (PT@CC) is pleased to announce the winners of the PT@CC Teaching Resources Awards.

Developed as a means to recognize and encourage sharing of high quality instructional techniques, the contest guidelines invited community college instructors to submit an original demonstration, an individual or group class activity, an interactive teaching/learning module, or other pedagogy designed to illustrate a psychological concept or theory.

PT@CC extends thanks and appreciation to the APA Education Directorate for support of the Teaching Resources Awards. In addition, special thanks go out to all of the psychology faculty members who participated in the competition. Join us in congratulating this year’s winners!
