Who Killed Socrates?
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences
The APA (2000, 2007) recommended the inclusion of a capstone course in psychology undergraduate teaching. We now live in a strained economic climate in which universities must deliver education to increasing numbers of students, usually delivered within lecture-based teaching. One goal of psychology is to lead students towards meaning-making and tolerance of ambiguity; skills which cannot adequately be taught from a lecture podium. The goal of my presentation would be to offer a fresh look at empirically derived pedagogic theory, application of which, within a core course such as a capstone experience, may anticipate and elucidate emerging educational demands as well as address some longstanding curricular needs of undergraduate psychology faculty and students.
