The NIU physics department has an active teacher certification program, certifying one of the largest numbers of secondary physics teachers in the state of Illinois. The department, the college, and the university have a commitment to improving the teacher certification program in physics (and all the STEM fields), as evidenced by the creation of a new interdisciplinary center (the Center for Secondary Science and Math Education) in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. We are committed to being a national leader in physics teacher education and view PhysTEC as a method for furthering this effort. We look forward to learning from the experiences of existing PhysTEC institutions and to applying (and extending) these efforts at NIU.
