Great Resource List on Cognition

The Office of Teaching Resources in Psychology (OTRP), which develops and distributes teaching and advising materials and provides services to teachers of psychology at all levels on behalf of The Society for the Teaching of Psychology, has created a GREAT list of resources and videos on cognition - so important to learning and knowledge management.

Of note, two video clips by Daniel Kahneman, author of Thinking Fast and Slow, on the concepts of thinking "fast versus slow," and how our "experiencing selves" and our "remembering selves" perceive happiness differently.

You'll also find links to some great Ted talks by Barry Schwartz on the paradox of choice, Diane Halpern on how our government is broken, and Kathryn Schulz on embracing our fallibility.

I'd have made it easy for you by putting in specific links to the above, but there are many more great resources on the page, so best to navigate directly there so you don't miss a thing.

 Happy viewing!
