In this episode Eric interviews Amy Hunter from Seton Hall University in South Orange, NJ. Amy is a behavioral neuroscience who enjoys teaching a variety of courses, served as department chair for seven years, and she is quite active in the Society for the Teaching of Psychology (STP). After Amy very politely corrects Eric on the difference between flashbacks and reverse order, Amy shares her academic story, with an undergraduate double major in psychology and biology. Amy discusses the importance of having a functional department and how different individuals take a turn in serving as department chair. Amy is a runner, so we chatted about her running options while at the Annual Conference for Teaching in Pittsburgh in October 2022. We end on the importance of mentoring and role-modeling.
