Webinar: Teaching Physics Modules
This webinar will introduce the participants to a series of modules that they can use in their physics teacher preparation programs as supplements to the existing physics teaching methods courses, as an independent study course (the material will be enough for 3 credits) or as resources for the students to use without attached coursework. They can also be used in professional development programs and in PER courses for doctoral students.
2015 PhysTEC Conference
The 2015 PhysTEC Conference will be held on February 5-7 in Seattle, WA. The theme for the conference is "Building Thriving Programs". The conference will feature a half-day pre-conference Learning Assistant Workshop on February 5th.
Building a Thriving Undergraduate Physics Program
The goal of the workshop is to assist departments in developing strategies for increasing enrollment of physics majors. Institutions are invited to send teams of 2-4 faculty members to analyze their current departmental situation and decide how to take actions that will help them sustainably achieve their goals. This workshop is held in conjunction with the 2015 PhysTEC Conference
