We are looking to streamline our physics major and make it more relevant to future physics teachers.  Also, we are looking to improve our record in enabling students who enter our major with the intent of teaching physics at the secondary level to graduate successfully with the credentials that will enable them to do so.  Our institution already has a large education department but the physics department has not been working effectively with education in preparing future physics teachers.

I feel that PhysTEC will provide many resources and suggestions of best practices that can help us to address this population and its needs more specifically.  We are in the beginning phases of becoming more intentional about preparing future physics teachers and to re-visioning our curriculum to address their needs more specifically.
