  • Ted Talks Psychology

    Welcome to TED TALKS PSYCHOLOGY a series of curated lessons derived from TED. TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) is a global set of conferences owned by the private non-profit Sapling Foundation under the slogan “ideas worth spreading”. Speakers are selected for their originality, clarity of vision and insight into present problems. Many of their presentation conclude with optimistic suggestions for change. The speakers are given less than 18 minutes to present their ideas in an innovative and engaging manner. They address a wide range of topics within the research and practice of science and culture, often through storytelling. Presenters include leading thinkers, innovators, scientists, and many Noble Prize winners. TED TALKS PSYCHOLOGY was created by two university professors with over 90 years of professional practice and teaching to help psychology students and their professors see beyond the material (often dated material) found in their text books and tune in to some of the most cutting edge thinking and research currently going on anywhere on the planet. They have taken TED talks and assembled them into specific topic areas within psychology. They have provided advanced organizers (or pre-thinking prompts) to engage student awareness. After viewing the each talk, a series of higher level thinking questions are presented to stimulate critical thinking.

  • Psychology In Action: Career in Psychology

    Psychology in Action is an organization formed by UCLA Psychology doctoral students. Our aim is to communicate psychological research to community members and other interested parties outside of our field. Interesting, important, and potentially life-altering information is published by psychologists at a rapid rate, but our findings rarely reach public consciousness. We believe that psychological research is not only for the consumption of other clinicians and researchers, but that our broadest impact in our quest to discover how the mind works, what drives us, and how do we differ from one another, is to make it known to the world outside of academia.
