Webcasts from APA!

 The APA and TOPSS are organizing two webcasts that look like they might be VERY useful for high school psych teachers:
  • The great Barney Beins (Research methods textbook author! AP Psych reader! Long-time friend of high school Psych! Good guy!) is presenting "APA Online Psychology Laboratory: Experiments and Demos to Engage your Students" on Sep. 12 at 1:00 eastern time. This time probably conflicts with most teaching responsibilities, but there should be a video posted after the webinar. Barney is one of the smartest fellows I know, an expert in research methodology, and a fabulous presenter, so I think this will be a great webcast!
  • On Sep. 23rd, Eric Chudler will present "Neuroethics and Neurotechnology" (7:00 p.m. EST) Many of us have used Dr. Chudler's "Neuroscience for Kids" website for years, and his explanations/demonstrations of complex neurological research findings are always clear and understandable. I predict this will be another great webcast!
By the way, if you aren't yet a member of TOPSS, what's holding you back? Webcasts like these from the APA are a great example of the research-based, accessible materials that TOPSS provides - please consider joining!
