Session 2C | The Changing Landscape of Psychology: Preparing the Next Generation of Psychologists (1.25 CEs)
Presenters: Stacey Lambert, Psy.D., Jason Osher, Ph.D., Erlene Rosowsky, Psy.D., and Ron Cobb, Ph.D.
This presentation will provide active learning methods that have been used in other professions but are relevant and useful to our training programs.
By learning best practices in teaching pedagogy used in medical school settings, psychologist educators can consider how to incorporate these practices in their programs. Additionally, the presentation covers the rationale for including training in advanced competency skills, which will assist future psychologists in entering the employment market with greater preparation to serve in the complex roles they take on. A number of active learning methods that have been used effectively in other clinical disciplines that offer additional benefits over traditional pedagogies will be highlighted. Examples include Problem-based Learning, which focuses on students working together to understand a problem or case, and Team-Based Learning, which emphasizes collaborative learning and an integration of perspectives.
1. Participants will be able to describe the changing marketplace for psychologists and how this dictates the need for psychology training programs to evolve accordingly.
2. Participants will be able to identify the specific skills/competencies that will be critical for the future of psychological practice.
3. Participants will begin to assess the value of active learning pedagogies for delivering doctoral psychology education.
