"Teaching is the greatest act of optimism." -Colleen Wilcox

I have taught both in-person and online versions of Introduction to Social Psychology at the undergraduate level. I have also taught master's level courses on Statistical Models: Selection and Application and Social Neuroscience of Decision Making.

Instructors interested in incorporating research on positive emotions into their classroom are encouraged to read the following:

Kok, B. E. & Fredrickson, B. L. (2012). How positive emotions broaden and build. In J. J. Froh & A. C. Parks (Eds.) Activities for Teaching Positive Psychology: A Guide for Instructors. Washington DC: APA Books.

From 2008-2009, I was involved with the UNC pilot of Sakai, an online, open source, course management platform. In the video below, I discuss the impact of integrating technology into my teaching.
