The purpose of this module on Industrial-Organizational (I-O) psychology is to provide
a general overview of the field that serves as a lead-in to any of the other modules that
follow. Although this module is intended to be a ten to fifteen minute introduction, it
can also be expanded into a full class lecture for instructors who are more familiar with
For those of you who are less familiar with I-O psychology, notes are provided with
each slide to give you illustrative examples to supplement the content of the slides.
Again, this module is intended to be a snapshot of the field and not an exhaustive
discussion of all the things done by I-O psychologists.
