7th Mountain States Conference
on the Teaching of Psychology
took place on October
17, 2015 at Fort Lewis College in lovely Durango, CO. The conference
featured a keynote from nationally-known
speaker Dr. Bill Buskist along with hands-on
workshops with stimulating discussions.
Our target audience
includes psychology instructors in high schools, community colleges, 4-year
colleges, and universities, although the conference has broad topics that will
also be relevant to non-psychology teachers too.
WHERE WILL THE CONFERENCE BE IN 2017? Frontrunners for
next host include Adams State, Salt Lake, or Albuquerque...
Dick Gorman, the founder of this exciting conference,
died in 2010. Read
more about his legacy here
well as his many valuable contributions to the teaching
of psychology. In
Dick's memory, we continue to hold the interactive and intimate MOUNTAIN ToP CONFERENCE
as a meaningful way to honor his legacy and passion for the
teaching of psychology. Past MToP conferences were held at Fort Lewis
College in Durango,
CO in 2011 and at CNM in Albuquerque in 2013.
We hope you will have a
experience a piece of Dick Gorman's teaching vision.
