8 Academic Strategic and Assessment Plan (ASAP) Department: Psychology Academic Year: 2009/2010 TWC Strategic Plan 2000/Curriculum Goals 4. Ensure quality by creating an organizational structure which enhances academic programs. 5. Develop programs which are consistent with our stated purpose and which are consistent with the resources of the institution. 6. Ensure quality in existing programs by introducing concepts of internationalization in the curriculum. Mission of the Department: To develop individuals who are competent, professional, service-oriented individuals, and reflective practitioners. Department Goal 1: Develop psychology laboratory experience for psychology majors as a means of retaining students in the major and expanding skills associated with undergraduate research experiences. s 1. Psychology programming will include laboratory coursework. Select existing courses will be modified to include laboratory experience. Ongoing discussion between Psychology faculty PY101 and PY331 were reformulated to include labtype experience. 2. Laboratory space is required for hands on experience with ongoing faculty psychophysiological research. A formal plan for a research lab will be presented along with instrumentation, space and funding requirements. A grant afforded real-life research opportunity and Durham 102 was allocated to Psychology lab for Ongoing. Moved plan prep to ASAP 8

9 Department Goal 2: Revise the Psychology Curriculum. s 1. To present a change in the Psychology Reaction of Curriculum and major to include a B.S. degree option Policy Committee to presentation. 2. To consider Psychology course offerings in light of increasing knowledge of science and human behavior. Survey existing course offerings. Investigated regional B.S. offerings. Most have clinical/counseling or general psychology degrees. Experimental degrees are largely absent. Compared TWC offerings to other regional institutions and found APA resource as guide to build a program. The APA resource recommends the scientist-educator model for instructors emphasis in teaching. Both psychology faculty follow the recommended model for instruction. Basic program strengths include courses which cover most of recommended topic domains and include application/integration components. In addition, the Behavioral Science course offerings add to existing bias for counseling/clinical. Weaknesses include no course on Learning Theory or logic; only 1 course for biological exploration; and poorly developed math/research course progressions. Changes Made as a Result of Plan still under development. Will submit to C & P for ASAP. Creating courses for Learning Theory (as lab based course) and Psychophysiology will expand course offerings to be in keeping with APA recommendations AND increase the number of courses that connect outside the psychology program (applications in education, health and criminal justice). In addition, yoking the preexisting logic and social research methods courses will provide students with developmental progressions of information that will prepare them for capstone [integrative] experiences. 9

10 Department Goal 3: Create a student recruitment mechanism designed to increase student pool and student quality. s 1. Build a recruitment and retention plan. Engage current psychology students for dialog and feedback. Met with psych majors in spring They recommended increased field experiences, social opportunities and conference events. Plan still in development. Projected Department Goals ) Explore grant options for obtaining funding for computers and EEG equipment for a Psychology Lab. 2) Send a proposal for B.S. degree option, including new Learning Theory and Psychophysiology courses, through C&P. 3) Recruitment planning ) Implement the B.S. degree option. 2) Send a plan for growth of the Psychology Program through C&P. 3) Continue investigation for funding psychology laboratory ) Explore rearrangement of faculty staffing to include a third faculty member either in a part-time or full-time capacity in order to expand programming quality and course offerings. 10
