Graduate students, postdocs and new faculty are invited to explore opportunities as academic psychologists at the third annual Developing Teachers of Psychology (DTP) Workshop before APA's Annual Convention.
The workshop--held Tuesday, Aug. 20, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Wednesday, Aug. 21, from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.--is presented by APA's Board of Educational Affairs (BEA) and the Education Directorate, in collaboration with the American Psychological Association of Graduate Students, APA's Div. 2 (Society for the Teaching of Psychology) and the Preparing Future Faculty Program.
Participants will spend a day and a half working with three distinguished, award-winning teachers of psychology to construct a strategic plan and improve their skills. Pre-registration is required, and there is a fee of $20 for graduate or postdoctoral students and $40 for faculty for this workshop.
Immediately after the workshop, BEA and the Education Directorate will present two career seminars:
"How to be an excellent mentor," will be held on Wednesday, Aug. 21, from noon to 1:45 p.m. W. Brad Johnson, PhD, and Jennifer Huwe, PsyD, co-authors of Getting Mentored in Graduate School, an APA publication, will conduct this seminar.
"Career paths," will be held on Wednesday, Aug. 21, 2-5 p.m. Presenters of this seminar will speak about their particular career path in psychology and answer questions from the audience. It will conclude with a presentation from the APA Office of Research on the latest employment and salary data relating to these careers and psychology in general.
There is no fee for these seminars, but pre-registration is encouraged. For more information about the DTP workshop or these seminars, contact Lillie Harmon at (202) 336-5710.
