I have been lucky to work with many wonderful students in the classroom and the lab. I was the instructor of record for a large undergraduate course (Child Development for non-psychology majors, ~100 students) for two semesters (Spring 2017, Spring 2018) in the Department of Psychology, Neuroscience & Behaviour at McMaster University. I have also been the teaching assistant for undergraduate courses in Human Perception and Cognition, Essentials of Developmental Psychology, and Music Development and Performance, which involved running small-group tutorials and discussion sections (10-20 students).

Here I have archived some demonstrations and links that I have found useful. I am always looking for new resources and demonstrations to make psychological research come alive for my students!
