Dr. Richard Velayo’s research group, the Internationalizing the Teaching of Psychology Team, focused on strategies that help infuse international content and promote a global perspective within the discipline of psychology at the higher education level. Student research assistants work on projects related to the following:


(1) identifying effective pedagogical strategies to internationalize psychology courses,

(2) developing of an assessment tool for an internationalized psychology course, and

(3) applying Internet-based technologies (IBTs) as teaching and research tools to help infuse international content.


Research projects generally involve the design and development of online surveys, identification of and access to resources (e.g., instructors, courses, multimedia materials), and curriculum-based applications of IBTs. Students who are particularly interested in the use of social media technologies, international students, and/or those who have lived abroad or have traveled extensively in other countries are especially sought.
