A Syllabus for Introductory Human Development

Human development is part of many preservice teacher education programs. The syllabus for this human development course was written by Stacy DeZutter. A key component is service learning, in which students volunteer at a local school or other organization focused on meeting human developmental needs.

Open Yale Courses Introduction to Psychology

A set of 20 class lectures for Psych 110, "Introduction to Psychology," as taught by Paul Bloom at Yale University. Many (though not all) of the sessions are related to ed psych. more...

The materials are available to download free of charge. You can access the reading assignment, an audio recording of the lecture, or a video recording of the lecture. In some cases there are links to additional materials on the Internet (though note that some of those may be under restrictive copyright).

( Note: If you want to see other open courses from Yale, here is their basic website: Open Yale Courses. MIT has an even larger repository, but their courses tend to me more technical and less related to education. Here is the the MIT website: MIT Open Courseware.)

AP Psychology Course Home Page

The College Board (of SAT fame) publishes materials to support the teaching of the various courses for which Advanced Placement (AP) exams are available. This link is to the home page for materials about teaching introductory psychology. As with other materials about teaching general psychology, it is only partially relevant for teaching educational psychology, but there are nonetheless ideas here that are useful for ed psych. Keep in mind that most AP courses are offered to 12th-grade high school students who are somewhat keen to learn--and that demographic may or may not fit your own students.
