Definition of PhysTEC Future Teacher : A student at a PhysTEC Institution who has committed to completing a program of physics teacher education.

Definition of a Future Teacher at CWU:

1. Student has a graduation plan on file with their advisor.

2. Student has started taking education courses or is enrolled in them the next quarter after developing a graduation plan.

PhysTEC Learning Assistant: Any PhysTEC student who facilitates learning in an undergraduate physics course, receives formal pedagogical instruction, and is encouraged to enter a teacher preparation program.

Commentary on Learning Assistant data:

This table lists the total number of students who were LAs. If only one student was an LA and she was an LA fall, winter, and spring quarters, the table would show 1.

Definition of PhysTEC Course : Any physics, physical science, or education course that has been revised or created at a PhysTEC Institution for the PhysTEC program.

Commentary on Enrollment data:

The only course we added or revised for PhysTEC was the LA course sequence of PHYS 292 and 392. We had already converted all of our first year and general education physics courses to an integrated lecture/lab format.
