Susan Nolan





Worth Publishers invites you to our next complimentary TLC Symposium, "Think Like a Scientist."  In this one-hour webinar, Dr. Susan A. Nolan summarizes current research concerning:

• The value of incorporating scientific thinking into introductory psychology courses.

• Techniques that enhance student learning related to psychological science.

• The importance of deploying active-learning exercises to the classroom.


Susan Nolan will share a framework that helps students develop scientific and critical thinking, and will present examples of longer research modules that she embeds in her courses across the psychology curriculum - including introductory psychology. In addition, Susan will discuss how this research-focused approach aligns with the APA Guidelines for the Undergraduate Psychology major and builds on evidence-based, active-learning pedagogy.




Susan Nolan earned her Ph.D. from Northwestern University, and is a professor in the Department of Psychology at Seton Hall University. She conducts research on interpersonal consequences of mental illness and the role of gender in STEM careers, the latter funded in part by the National Science Foundation. Susan enjoys teaching a wide range of courses, including Introductory Psychology and Statistics, and she integrates scientific reasoning into every course she teaches. Susan is the co-author of two statistics textbooks from Worth. She is also the new co-author on Sandy and Don Hockenbury's introductory psychology textbooks, also from Worth. Susan is Vice President of Diversity and International Relations of the Society for the Teaching of Psychology, and is the President of the Eastern Psychological Association. She is a Fellow of the American Psychological Association and Eastern Psychological Association.
