SIOP-GIT Blog readers might remember a previous post on two articles Clemente Diaz wrote for the APA's Psych Learning Curve website addressing why Intro instructors should include I-O in their classes as well as the common barriers they face.  

Building off of this work, Clemente submitted a poster to the Society for the Teaching of Psychology 4th Annual Twitter Poster Conference - and it was one of two winning submissions!  Check it out here:

The big takeaway as to why Intro instructors don't include I-O in their classes is because it isn't in the textbook . . . which is the primary goal of GIT!  Let's hope that as progress continues to be made in gettting more I-O into Intro textbooks, we'll see more Intro instructors choosing to cover the topic!

Clemente also created a poster to provide more information on why and how to incorporate I-O psychology into Intro classes; feel free to pass this along to anyone you know that teaches Intro!

Congrats to Clemente!
