Teaching

PYB301 (previously PYB207) - Psychology in the Community (subject for final year students)


  • Career development for psychology students
  • 50 hour service learning placement with a community, private, or government organisation

  • In this core final year unit, students work with community partners to develop drafts of grant applications for funding.

PYB207 - Group Work


  • Intensive experiential learning through a group experience;
  • Development of group facilitation skills; and
  • Refinement of reflective thinking during and after group facilitation.

I have also previously taught PYB000, PYB215, PYB302, PYB306. I have also developed and taught the psychology first year curriculum for University of Minnesota's Bachelor of Science (Health science) degree (2009/10).
