What is TEP SIG?
(Go back to the
TEP SIG is an abbreviation for "Special Interest Group on the Teaching of Educational Psychology." TEP SIG is one of many SIGs affiliated with
American Educational Research Association
TEP SIG provides various forums for instructors to share ideas and materials useful for teaching this particular subject in teacher education programs, though much of its materials, resources, and activities also are quite valuable for teaching other subjects.TEP SIG tends to focus on educational psychology as it is normally taught to and learned by preservice teachers (vs. graduate students in educational psychology). It also tends to have an "American," or at least North American, emphasis because the members of the group tend to come from Canada or the United States. In general, though, the group is very interested in learning about teacher education in other societies, and how it does (or does not) make use of educational psychology in those societies.
Additional regular activities of the TEP SIG include the following:
A blog about teaching educational psychology
listserve about teaching educational psychology
Recent research presentations at the annual meeting of the American Educational Research Association
related to teaching educational psychology
Teaching Educational Psychology Facebook page
The online journal
