About PEDA

About PEDA

Founded in fall 2010 by a group of psychology graduate students, the Psychology Educator Development Association (PEDA) exists to offer professional and personal support to graduate students at the University of Georgia who are interested in building their teaching skills. Our organization serves as a resource for graduate students who are currently involved in teaching undergraduate courses, either as instructors of record or teaching assistants (TAs), as well as students who plan to teach in the future.

PEDA has a collection of resources from past and present instructors available for various classes in the department. PEDA also arranges guest speakers, workshops, and periodic social activities. We also facilitate peer mentoring between seasoned instructors / graduate students ime first-time TAs. These relationships are intended to ease new TAs into their new roles as teachers and provides them with a contact person who can answer questions about typical TA responsibilities and other related issues.

If you are interested in learning more about PEDA or would like to join our organization, please contact a member of the Executive Board.
