Like its predecessors, Volume III of the Handbook for Teaching Introductory Psychology provides introductory psychology instructors with teaching ideas and activities that can immediately be put into practice in the classroom. It contains an organized collection of articles from Teaching of Psychology (TOP), the official journal of the Society for the Teaching of Psychology, Division 2 of the American Psychological Association. Volume III contains 89 articles from TOP that have not been included in other volumes. Another distinction between this volume and its predecessors is its emphasis on testing and assessment. The book is divided into two sections. Section One, "Issues and Approaches in Teaching Introductory Psychology," contains 52 articles on critical issues, such as: how to approach the course; understanding students' interests, perceptions, and motives; students' existing knowledge of psychology (including their misconceptions); a comparison of introductory textbooks and tips on how to evaluate them; test questions and student factors affecting exam performance; an overview of different forms of feedback; giving extra credit; and how to deal with academic dishonesty. Section Two consists of 37 articles that present demonstrations, class and laboratory projects, and other techniques to enhance teaching and learning in both the introductory, as well as advanced courses in the discipline. This section is organized so as to parallel the order of topics found in most introductory psychology textbooks. Intended for academicians who teach the introductory psychology course and/or oversee grad assistants who teach the course, all royalties of the book go directly to the Society for the Teaching of Psychology to promote its activities to further improve the teaching of psychology.

The editor's goal in compiling this book was to invite authors to articulate their philosophies, course designs, and teaching techniques for the introductory psychology course. The authors were told to write a chapter for all introductory psychology teachers and to address how the teaching of introductory psychology could be made more rewarding to students and teachers alike. A few authors comment specifically on the writing process of introductory textbooks, and the parallels they have found between the classes they teach and the material they write. It is hoped that these chapters help to shed light on any introductory textbook's underlying purpose, goals, and organization and thus enable teachers to use these essential texts more effectively.

The Oxford Handbook of Undergraduate Psychology Education is dedicated to providing comprehensive coverage of teaching, pedagogy, and professional issues in psychology. The Handbook is designed to help psychology educators at each stage of their careers, from teaching their first courses and developing their careers to serving as department or program administrators. The goal of the Handbook is to provide teachers, educators, researchers, scholars, and administrators in psychology with current, practical advice on course creation, best practices in psychology pedagogy, course content recommendations, teaching methods and classroom management strategies, advice on student advising, and administrative and professional issues, such as managing one's career, chairing the department, organizing the curriculum, and conducting assessment, among other topics. The primary audience for this Handbook is college and university-level psychology teachers (at both two and four-year institutions) at the assistant, associate, and full professor levels, as well as department chairs and other psychology program administrators, who want to improve teaching and learning within their departments. Faculty members in other social science disciplines (e.g., sociology, education, political science) will find material in the Handbook to be applicable or adaptable to their own programs and courses.

Recognizing the importance of introductory psychology as a gateway course, this edited, up-to-date guide presents insights that help educators address challenges of coverage, integration of active learning opportunities, and ever-evolving educational technologies. The book features current scholarship and pedagogical practices regarding the teaching of introductory psychology in face-to-face, online, or hybrid environments. The editors achieve their goals through an unusual approach: inviting experienced and expert teachers of introductory psychology to describe an ongoing theme that provides structure and unity to the gateway course. Themes include broad frameworks (e.g., problem-based learning), big ideas that integrate course content (e.g., subjectivity of human experience), or particular skills and ways of thinking (e.g., quantitative reasoning).
