Leveraging Technology for Psychology Undergraduates

The Department of Psychology is using technology to extend and deepen their instruction and advising services by designing and implementing a web interface for their undergraduate program.

Utilizing technology in this way will extend the departmental academic and student advising services beyond the classroom and the psychology advising office. The Department of Psychology gathered their core courses and their broader undergraduate programmatic opportunities (e.g., directed research, internship information) into a unified interactive web environment.

Interactive modules offer students an opportunity to reflect upon their academic experience in the discipline through two interactive modules: one focusing on what it could mean to be a psychology major, including broad support of students’ understanding of what a major is and why it is important to have one; and the second module focus on research involvement in the department’s faculty laboratories.
