  • --a wiki-based site that is especially rich in short videos useful for teaching introductory psychology
  • relatively new (as of November, 2009) wiki-based site with resources for teaching introductory psychology. Sponsored by Division 2 of the American Psychological Association.

Resources about general psychology (vs. for teaching psychology):

  • The Psychology Wiki: Educational psychology --provides information about ed psych. Some is basic, some more esoteric--and also some is missing. Part of a more general website featuring content in all areas of psychology.
  • Athabasca University Psychology Resources --a compilation of websites related to various topics of intro psychology. Not primarily focused on ed psych as such. Relatively few original sources--mostly links to other people's sites, but selected with the needs of students in mind who are majoring in psychology.
  • Ed Psych Central --a big online clearinghouse of online articles and information about psychology. There is one section about educational psychology, though not specifically about the teaching of educational psychology. Most materials are either articles posted online or else links to websites related to some aspect of psychology (or ed psych, for the section of the site about that field).
