Session Type: Teaching and Learning
This session will describe how Facebook and a visually designed website were used to engage students in a psychology course. It will detail a successful student-driven role-play activity where students posed as a prominent psychoanalyst and used the FB applications to demonstrate a critical understanding of a psychoanalytical perspective. The friends network, the book review software, and FB notes are only a few of the tools that were used to apply psychoanalytic theory to modern-day events, publications, and people. The course website's instructional design, visuals, and Flash elements will also be described. These digital teaching strategies can be applied to courses across the curriculum.
