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.
"The route through childhood is shaped by many forces, and it differs for each of us. Our biological inheritance, the temperament with which we are born, the care we receive, our family relationships, the place where we grow up, the schools we attend, the culture in which we participate, and the historical period in which we live — all these affect the paths we take through childhood and condition the remainder of our lives."
