Colorado School of Mines is currently collaborating with University of Northern Colorado - Greeley to facilitate CSM graduates in the process of teacher licensure. Being a PhysTEC member will allow CSM physics department to gain insights into best practices in recruitment and retention. CSM physics has one of the largest UG major populations in the U.S., graduating an average of ~ 65 B.S.'s per year over the past several years. We would like to learn how best to provide another option for those who have an interest in a teaching career. A PhysTEC membership will allow us to maintain a dialog with a national group of experts and those who share similar passions. Our intro. physics sequence employs over 50 UG learning assistants, over 50% of them are physics majors. Many have expressed the desire to pursue a career in education. We are attempting to create the most attractive avenue for them to accomplish their interest. A PhysTEC membership will provide the environment for us to gain insights into current successful efforts.
