I am Daniel R. Stalder, a social psychologist and associate professor of psychology at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. Two of my favorite courses to teach are Basic Statistical Methods and Social Psychology. Every semester that I teach Social Psychology, I sign up myself and my social psychology students for a mock support group called, “PARBs Anonymous,” to illustrate important social psychology concepts and points and to begin the process of encouraging students to think critically and to consider the possibility of their own biases. This blog is based in part on this teaching tool.
I have been in this field for 15+ years, and I have published in several journals including the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Journal of Social and Personal Relationships, Personality and Individual Differences, Social Influence, and Teaching of Psychology. I have also written for, consulted for, and been interviewed by nonacademic outlets. I have received research- and teaching-based awards (mostly local). For more information, see http://stalder.socialpsychology.org/.
For those who might not realize it, being a professor at a college or university can at times become an all-day 7-day-a-week (sometimes exciting) job for many of us, with teaching, advising, research, department/school service,… This is partly to say that I will not be posting daily, but I will post as regularly as I can!
