Psychology Research Day

This year, we are honored to be virtually hosting two student panels along with a number of live individual student presentations that bring together research from graduate students across ten training areas in psychology at the Graduate Center. In them, we will tackle the feat of research during COVID-19, giving students an opportunity to showcase their wins and reflect on our collective losses. Our panels will explore the delicate nature and urgent research transnationally, reflecting on critical research with refugees/immigrants/activists/therapists globally, including in Germany, El Salvador, India, and Lebanon. A detailed conference program can be found below.

Psychology Pedagogy Day

Please join us for Pedagogy Day 2021 on October 15th, 2021 from 9 am to 4 pm EST. This year’s theme is Learning As a Disruptive Praxis. We anticipate that this day will be full of provocations, challenges, collaborations, and community building as we reimagine the roles that community, compassion, and collective action serve in the classroom. We will be joined by a wonderful group of panelists and workshop facilitators who will engage us in critical discussions about how we can use pedagogy as a tool of disruption.
