It provides references, exercises, and experiential activities for engaging students in the classroom and beyond to bring about the joy of learning psychology. The book also serves the crucial purpose of building a critical perspective towards the discipline of psychology, its emergence and current standing vis-à-vis other disciplines in social sciences. It harmonises concepts with appropriate pedagogic strategies and provides opportunities for building of a better theory-practice interface. It is rooted in the assumption that students are repositories of experiences, previous learnings, and everyday knowledge systems, which need to be tapped and factored into the teaching-learning process. The book also attempts to initiate a self-reflective engagement of psychology teachers with the changing nature of the discipline. For this, it provides an evolutionary story of the discipline, and resources aimed at updating teachers’ knowledge. Printed Pages: 246
