OPL represents the first National Science Foundation funded entry for psychology
in the National Science Digital Library. The APA Education Directorate also
provides support for this project. OPL currently offers classic studies in
psychology that students can participate in, and then analyze data from the experiences.
As OPL continues to
develop, new materials will be added to enhance learning about the
discipline of psychology in high school, community colleges, and universities.
You can search for materials using Keywords, Topic, and Method of Analysis.
Keyword searches examine all fields and return results consistent with your
search. You may also browse by topic; a broad listing of topics in psychology
is displayed, allowing for a materials search within that area. Browsing by
method allows for searches based on research methodology.
Links to related pedagogical tools are located in the resources section of this site.
All resources contained in OPL have been reviewed by an
Advisory Board comprised of
faculty from high schools, community colleges, and university campuses.
Therefore, you should
find interactive studies and demonstrations that can be integrated
seamlessly into your classroom. Additional materials are available and
links are provided to companion sites where appropriate. In particular,
several resources are available at the Office
for Teaching Resources in Psychology, a site supported by Division 2 of
the American Psychological Association. We welcome suggestions from the user
community; please submit any recommendations to OPLEditor@opl.apa.org.
