International Teaching of Psychology Network
[from the web]
Mission of the Network
Psychology as a discipline is becoming increasingly international in focus. It is also growing rapidly as a profession in many parts of the world. International conferences, congresses and workshops, and cross-national research teams play an integral role in the professional life of psychologists in many countries and regions of the world.
Interest in the internationalization of psychological knowledge has increased dramatically during the last two decades, not only in research and practice, but also in the teaching and training of psychology.
The mission for the International Teaching of Psychology Network (InterTOP Network) is to foster international communication among teachers, scholars, and researchers in teaching and training in psychology. There is a compelling need for greater understanding and exchange of ideas on how psychology is taught in different countries and around the globe.
The general and specific topics concerning psychology education in all educational settings, including high schools, undergraduate colleges, and graduate programs, are in the scope of interest of the InterTOP Network.
It is expected that InterTOP Network will:
- Foster international professional development in the teaching of psychology
- Broaden the worldwide knowledge base for teaching and training in psychology
- Provide new ideas and international experience for the teaching of psychology
- Provide opportunities to discover different resources available throughout the world for teaching and training in psychology.
