The CDPP is strongly invested in preparing students to teach in University settings. The CDPP faculty take great pride in their contributions to undergraduate teaching at a leading liberal arts college and are eager to share their knowledge and experience with graduate student teaching assistants. CDPP students serve as teaching assistants in the department’s introductory psychology course sequence and the undergraduate abnormal psychology class. Many additional opportunities (e.g., Educational Psychology, Learning, Developmental Psychology, Cognitive Psychology, Statistics, and Multivariate Statistics) are available to gain teaching experience at both the undergraduate and graduate level.
"Surface analogies are seen by the common mind, and need no effort of construction; but the hidden properties, the relations which spread wide out through nature and art-these are discovered only when the veils that conceal them are pierced by the power of constructive thought."
James Mark Baldwin, Handbook of Psychology: Senses and Intellect, 1889, p. 231
