Scullin, Michael K. – Teaching of Psychology, 2019
Many students and educators know that sleep is important to learning, yet there exists a gap between their knowledge and behavior.

In the context of two undergraduate courses on sleep (N = 34), students could earn extra credit if they averaged =8.0 hr of sleep during final…

Richmond, Aaron S.; Morgan, Robin K.; Slattery, Jeanne M.; Mitchell, Nathanael G.; Cooper, Anna Grace – Teaching of Psychology, 2019
Recent research suggests that designing a syllabus using learner-centered principles may increase students' perceptions of their instructor on the characteristics of rapport, caring, helpfulness, willingness to seek help from the instructor, and student motivation. Typically, a learner-centered syllabus is one that presents a positive tone at the…

Electronic feedback given via word-processing software (e.g., track changes in Microsoft Word) allows for a simple way to provide feedback to students during the drafting process.

Duncan, Mary Katherine; Johnson, Jennifer Adrienne – Teaching of Psychology, 2019
Gardner, Csikszentmihalyi, and Damon defined good work as excellent, ethical, and engaged. In two studies, we explored factors that motivate and challenge undergraduate psychology majors' pursuit of academic good work (N = 100; M[subscript age] = 21.7; mostly female, Caucasian, and seniors). We found that excellent academic work was motivated by…

Thompson, W. Burt – Teaching of Psychology, 2019
When a psychologist announces a new research finding, it is often based on a rejected null hypothesis. However, if that hypothesis is true, the claim is a false alarm. Many students mistakenly believe that the probability of committing a false alarm equals alpha, the criterion for statistical significance, which is typically set at 5%. Instructors…

The purpose of this quasi-experiment is to test two different methods for helping students reduce anxiety before an exam. Students in two introductory psychology courses (N = 111) engaged in either a focused breathing exercise or an expressive writing exercise before their final exam. Results indicated that, compared with previous exam…

Jakobsen, Krisztina V.; Daniel, David B. – Teaching of Psychology, 2019
Research on team-based learning (TBL) generally supports its effectiveness over "traditional" lecture. In practice, however, lecturing rarely consists of teachers exclusively talking at their students, as many incorporate a variety of strategies to encourage active processing. This study compared an interactive lecture style with TBL on…

Whittington, Brandon L. – Teaching of Psychology, 2019
Although cell phones are often discussed as a problem in higher education research, the literature focuses largely on disciplinary tactics or integration of phones into the curriculum.
