PsychWiki was created by psychologists as a tool for psychologists so you can use it to create your own stand-alone pages to help with your professional life in psychology or use it to disseminate knowledge and publicize your work.

Not every page has to be linked or seen by everyone. PsychWiki was created by psychologists for psychologists so the purpose of PsychWiki is for the professional user community to use for whatever professional purpose they wish.

⇒ individual class assignments ( example)
⇒ coordinating RAs for lab sections (example)

⇒ association website (example)
⇒ student group website (example)
⇒ lab groups (example)

⇒ professional development series (example)
⇒ announcing workshops (example)
⇒ posting online studies (example)
⇒ organizing events (example)
⇒ group events (example)
⇒ collaborative notes from conferences (example)
⇒ posting interesting study results (example)
