The teachingedpsych wiki is a collection of materials helpful in teaching introductory educational psychology in teacher education programs. It is a project of TEP SIG, a group of teacher educators affiliated with the American Educational Research Association. It is managed by Kelvin Seifert and Zsuszanna Szabo.
We welcome new material, within reason, as well as comments about existing material. You can email suggested material to Kelvin Seifert or Zsuzsanna Szabo, and we will either post it or comment on its appropriateness. Note that all material on this website is open-source and free to download, and that any new additions must be similarly accessible as explained in the Creative Commons Licensing Agreement.

We are looking for ways to reorganize this wiki to facilitate finding individual items more easily. If you have thoughts about how to do this effectively, please send them to the wiki managers, Kelvin Seifert or Zsuzsanna Szabo.
