Discovering Psychology

Discovering Psychology was “A video instructional series on introductory psychology for college and high school classrooms and adult learners” consisting of 26 30-minute TV programs narrated by Philip Zimbardo and produced in association with the American Psychological Association.

The programs were originally aired in 1990 and a set of “updated resources” to accompany the programs were created in 2001. Although they’re obviously a little dated, both technologically and pedagogically, in some respects, in others they represent an interesting resource for teachers and students alike.

I don’t know where the original films now reside, but it’s possible to find some of the programs on YouTube if you want to search for them.

Whether any search is going to be worth the effort is a moot point, but the resources now available probably are worth exploring for their mix of Notes, classic experiments and key word glossaries.
