Steve Joordens is a Professor of Psychology, University of Toronto Scarborough.

Joordens teaches Introductory Psychology and a seminar course on the Scientific Study of Conscious and Unconscious Influences.

Joordens has several research areas including the study of conscious and unconscious influences, memory, and the effective use of technology for education.

Education and career

Joordens earned his bachelor's degree in Psychology at University of New Brunswick in 1989 and gained his PhD in Psychology at University of Waterloo in 1994 and postdoc at McMaster University on models and empirical studies of human memory.[1] He is also part of the Teaching Academy at the University of Toronto.[2] Joordens has been a faculty member of the University of Toronto Scarborough since 1995.

Research

He is an active researcher in Cognitive Psychology and Educational Psychology. In the field of cognitive psychology, he primarily researches issues related to human memory and consciousness. In the field of Educational Psychology, he primarily researches issues related to peer-assessment, critical thinking, engagement, and the effective use of technology for education.[3]


Teaching

With his Ph.D. Student Dwayne Pare, he co-developed peerScholar, an internet-based tool to support the development of critical thought and clear communication in any course context. peerScholar won the 2009 National Technology Innovation Award, and is now a commercial product licensed to Pearson Education.[4]

In 2006 CUPE 3902, the trade union representing TAs and sessional lecturers at the UofT, filed a grievance alleging that Joordens was using this programme to create a pool of "cheap labour" as a means of avoiding hiring teaching assistants to grade term work for his introductory Psychology class. In January 2009, an arbitrator upheld the grievance—noting that Joordens was indeed looking for "free" labour—and ruled that the University of Toronto needed to pay $283,000 to compensate the more than 1500 students who had been forced to work for free.[5]

MOOC

In 2013, Joordens taught Introduction to Psychology to more than 68,000 registered students on Coursera.[6] This course was developed as part of a $100,000 grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.[7] Joordens also teaches Memory and Human Lifespan Course on The Great Courses.[8]

Joordens has been involved in using innovative technolog\yin online learning experiences. His online courses offer a wide range of psychology concepts for students to explore, incorporated with technology measures such as Digital Lab Coat, mTuner, peerScholar, and using Wikipedia as an educational tool.[9][10][11]


Teaching awards

2012 – Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations Teaching Award.[12]

2010 – President’s Teaching Award, the highest teaching honour at the University of Toronto.[13]

2009/10 – One of Ontario's top 10 post-secondary lecturers as part of Television Ontario's "Best Lecturer" competition[14]

2009 – Joordens and Pare win 2009 National Technology Innovation Award for peerScholar.[15]
