CHAJESII Volume 78, Number 5, ISSN 0009-8655
According to David Berliner (1992), Regents Professor and noted expert in teaching educational psychology, the goal of teaching educational psychology is to influence the practice of teaching. Whether it is teaching preservice teachers how to motivate their students or how to write appropriate behavioral objectives and lesson plans, educational psychology plays a vital role in preparing preservice teachers for a career in the classroom. However, over the last twenty years, a shift has occurred in how and where educational psychology is being taught at colleges and universities. This has resulted in new and dynamic ways to teach educational psychology in today's classrooms. In short, this article will look quickly at some of the changes in teaching educational psychology and focus on the newest and most innovative way of teaching the subject, online instruction.
