PSY 581: Counseling & Interviewing

This course focuses on the theories, skills, preparation and practices required for serving as an instructional aide in psychology courses.  Topics include course preparation, skills for fostering student learning, theories of assessment, effective strategies for improving student writing, using technology in the classroom, diversity sensitivity, treatment of special populations, as well as ethical and legal issues faced in the classroom.  An emphasis will be made on both traditional and recent educational research findings and their implementation for effective teaching.  Students attend scheduled seminars on course topics, and serve outside the course as a teaching aide to a professor in the Department of Psychology.
