Although I teach several different courses from time to time, the two I am most likely to each include:
Introductory Psychology. Sam Gosling and I have been teaching increasingly large sections of beginning psychology since 2006. Beginning in 2011, our two 500-person class sections required students to bring laptops to class everyday where they could take daily benchmark quizzes, compete surveys, and chat with other students. We have now expanded one of the sections to 1,000 students -- 40 of whom get to come to a television studio while the remainder watch it live on their computers at home. I love this course because it mixes classroom experiments, interesting topics, and enthusiastic students.
Language and Personality. This is a graduate course that I teach every year or so to students in Psychology, Educational Psychology, Business, Communication, Linguistics, and other areas. This is more a hands-on approach to teaching where students learn to use computerized text analysis programs and to think about the analysis and interpretation of large text data sets.
Psychosomatic Processes. This graduate course provides a broad overview of research dealing with the links between mind and body. The course begins with a discussion of the biology of stress, including the nature of immune, autonomic, and brain activity. Later topics focus on emotion, coping, expressive writing, and psychotherapy as they relate to the cause, treatment, and prevention of disease. This is a high-pressure course that requires students to integrate the reading material.
Other courses I occasionally teach include:
Psychology and Language (Odyssey course; adult education)
Health Psychology (undergraduate level)
Social Psychology of Religion (undergraduate)
Social Psychology Area Seminar (graduate)
