I aim to help students see how class material is relevant in their lives and to the world in which they live. If I can do that—and, let's face it, for Psychology it's pretty easy—I find that students will engage with a topic at a level that changes how they think rather than merely acquiring the material that could as easily be absorbed from an afternoon on Wikipedia.
