Message from SIG Chair


Welcome to AERA's Special Interest Group devoted to Teaching Educational Psychology (TEP)!

For the upcoming year, I would like to bring to your attention several initiatives related to our ongoing efforts to provide a forum for research, discourse, and dissemination on topics related to teaching in this field that are already underway.

Publishing Options: Several of your fellow TEP-SIG members are currently working with IAP to put together a 6-volume book series titled Theory to Practice: Educational Psychology for Teachers and Teaching. With the target audience being those who teach educational psychology in teacher education programs, members of this SIG are in a unique position to provide important guidance in translating fundamental principles of learning, motivation, development, and assessment into effective instructional practice. With two books slated to come out each year for the next three years, there will be many opportunities to share your expertise! For information about the series, you can contact one of the series editors (all members of our SIG!): Mike Yough, Jane Vogler, or Eric Anderman. Upcoming volumes include...

  • Volume 1: Teaching on Assessment 
    Co-editors: Sharon Nichols (current TEP member) and Divya Varier
  • Volume 2: Teaching Motivation for Student Engagement 
    Co-editors: Debra Meyer and Alyssa Emery (current TEP member)
    Year 2
  • Volume 3: Teaching on and for Learning 
  • Volume 4: Teaching to Prepare Advocates
    Year 3
  • Volume 5: Teaching on and for Development
  • Volume 6: Teaching in Online, Distance, and Non-traditional Learning Contexts

Although the deadline for chapter proposals for Volume 1: Teaching on Assessment has passed, the call for Volume 2: Teaching Motivation for Student Engagement, remains open until 1/1/19, and calls for Volumes 3 and 4 will be out in the coming year. I hope you consider sharing your expertise by submitting a chapter proposal to one of these upcoming volumes! With so many of our member involved at the editorial level, IAP has agreed to extend a discount on book purchases from this series to all TEP-SIG members - what a deal!

Travel Funding: In an effort to support our most junior members (i.e., graduates students), we are working to provide a travel stipend for those who will be presenting in Toronto. More information about travel stipends for graduate students will be forthcoming.  If you have graduate students who might benefit, please consider inviting them to join our SIG when they become members of AERA.

I hope the fall semester has been a productive one, and am looking forward to a thought-provoking conference program!

Jane S. Vogler, 2018-19 TEP Chair
