Welcome, friends and colleagues, to the American Psychological Association’s flagship division for Educational Psychology. We’re hopeful that your time spent here will be both informative and enjoyable.
The field of educational psychology has a long history dating back to the early decades of the 20th century. Today, educational psychologists are addressing many critical issues facing educators and policymakers. We study learning, development, instruction, assessment, motivation, school adjustment, and many other topics relevant to shaping education. Additionally, educational psychologists play an essential role in the preparation of teachers and school leaders.
Of course, there are many ways to become involved in Division 15. We sponsor paper and poster sessions at the annual meetings of the American Psychological Association (photographs from the most recent conference are featured here). We publish a journal, Educational Psychologist, a Division 15 Newsletter, and a Weekly Newsletter of education news. We have an established committee for mentoring graduate students in educational psychology.
We also invite colleagues and students to become involved in Division 15 through a number of social media platforms and objectives we’ve recently launched:
- Review recent educational psychology job postings by visiting our job board, EdPsychJobs.info
- Publish work or read others’ content at EdPsychResources.com
- Share their thoughts and insights via the Division 15 Psychology Today blog.
- Get involved through Division 15’s social profiles (including Facebook, Google+, and Twitter)
