Discovering Biological Psychology 2e Instructors’ Resources Are Ready to Go
Posted Jul 29 2009 10:28pm
For those of us on quarter system, school seems pretty far away, even as August 1 approaches. For those of you on semesters, however, school is just around the corner. I was pleased to see that my Instructors’ Resources for Discovering Biological Psychology 2e were up and running on the Cengage site.
Instructor Resources for Discovering Biological Psychology Are Up and Running
The resources contain the usual–testbank (2400 questions by me), powerpoints, lecture notes and enrichment ideas, and so on. We still have our wonderful 1e animations that I did with John Woolsey–lots of good feedback on those from students and faculty.
I am especially proud of two new features–I spent a huge amount of time sorting through online videoclips on youtube and other sources, and integrated my recommendations with the lecture notes. I piloted these with my Spring Quarter 09 students, and they were really well received. Most are in the 2-3 minute range, so they break up lecture without losing one’s train of thought. Students stay awake. The second feature we added was a set of 10 clicker questions for each chapter, again integrated with the lecture notes. I really enjoyed using iClicker this past Spring, so once again, these questions have been tested on my own students.
I hope you find these resources useful in your own teaching! If you can think of other things we could incorporate, please let me know.
