The School Psychology Program at Kent State University incorporates various new media technologies such as instructional web pages and email discussion groups as necessary components of its training program.
Within this approach, doctoral students are required to regularly monitor their email correspondence and participate in a doctoral student online discussion group called a listserv. The doctoral student specific listserv is administered collaboratively by the program’s APA Division 16 Student Affiliate Chapter, SASP, and the school psychology program faculty.
The SASP-PHD listserv represents a central communication vehicle, providing doctoral students with important program news, updates about courses, and information regarding forthcoming academic and social opportunities. A subscription to the SASP-PHD listserv is facilitated by the student’s individual academic advisor upon admission to the doctoral program.
