Current Projects

Dr. Stevens is currently leading the adoption of an Open textbook for the Introduction to Psychology & Neuroscience courses (PSYO 1011/1012/1031/1032) at Dalhousie. She was the recipient of Dalhousie’s first OER grant and is working with Dr. Jennifer Stamp and current students to adapt and edit a custom textbook that fully supports the needs of the Intro program.
