***Update: Educational Resources & Knowledge Hub Now Accepting Submissions!***

The Council on Education (COE) is in the process of updating the Resources for Teaching Community Psychology. The Resources for Teaching Community Psychology (CP) is an online repository available through the Society for Community Research and Action (SCRA) website. The Resources contain a variety of syllabi, course activities, sources, videos, and other informative tools to assist educators as well as trainers in the community seeking to update or enhance their teaching and training. Based on metadata from the website, we know that the Resources are accessed extensively by educators and trainers; however, an update is long overdue, as most of the resources are from 2008-2011 or earlier. In addition, we are hoping to collect materials to address gaps in in areas of high interest for our field (e.g., resources on teaching related to racial justice, decoloniality, critical psychology, global CP). To accomplish these goals, we need your help!

Those of you who are teaching or have taught CP in any setting – in educational institutions at any level, in professional settings, with community partners, etc. – we urge you to share your education and training materials with the field through this resource

Please upload your resources using this Google Form: https://forms.gle/d7nC1vpcPjrm835g6.

In the upcoming year, we plan to organize knowledge sharing events to help publicize and orient the field to the updated Resources to promote dissemination. Keep an eye out for these! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at Coe@scra27.org.
