Rosa Receives Grant from Society for the Teaching of Psychology

April 4, 2018
By: WSU News

Nicole Rosa (Psychology) has been selected as a recipient of a 2018 Instructional Resource Award, a highly regarded honor presented by the Society for the Teaching of Psychology.

Rosa will receive an award of $1,500 with three co-authors to support a project titled “Increasing Inclusiveness and Awareness: Disability in Introductory Psychology.”

Disability is the largest minority group but is the least represented in discussions of diversity, Rosa said. “This project will expose students to disability and the challenges we create, often unknowingly, for people with disability,” she said. “We hope to not only increase awareness of disability but decrease the stigma associated with both visible and invisible disability.”

The IRA program is an international competition among members of the Society for the Teaching of Psychology designed to encourage recipients to complete substantive instructional research projects related to the teaching of psychology.

Its aim is to create resources suitable for posting on the Office of Teaching Resources in Psychology’s website or for publication in Teaching of Psychology, a journal of the Society for the Teaching of Psychology. Annually, the society’s Office of Recognitions and Awards administers between three to five IRA proposals that fulfill these program purposes.
