Dr. Jessica Cundiff, assistant professor of psychological science, received the Teaching Resources Award from the Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues (SPSSI).
Three SPSSI members received awards for developing novel resources that advance students’ understanding of social issues and can be used in various settings, such as online, small or large groups. The winning teaching resources will be featured on the SPSSI website and archived by the organization.
Cundiff’s entry was a debate assignment used in her Psychology of Gender course. By using the debate process to evaluate their perspectives on hot-button diversity topics, students have the opportunity to explore relevant social issues and examine them using scientific evidence. Students may also be assigned to defend a side with which they disagree.
