The Southwest Consortium for Innovative Psychology in Education (SCIPIE) is a professional organization devoted to the study of psychology in education. At the core of SCIPIE are devoted consortium members who maintain leadership roles in educational research around the country. SCIPIE hosts a biennial conference where researchers develop innovative approaches to research.
SCIPIE was created to bring together education scholars to advance the study of learning and to provide graduate students with opportunities for participation in authentic problem solving and dialogue. Our emphasis is on research currently in progress and difficult problems that researchers face in our areas of focus.
The organization capitalizes on the vibrancy of the Southwest and resources of founding institutions to maintain a center for innovation in the psychological study of learning. We have a strong presence in the American Psychological Association, American Educational Research Association, American Psychological Society, and many other domain specific organizations with emphasis in psychology in education.
