You are invited to participate in a discussion on the future of PhysTEC, in which we will discuss a number of possible new directions. The underlying theme will be "solving the problem," or how do we collectively work together to graduate 800 more highly qualified physics teachers per year and address the severe national shortage of high school physics teachers? Topics will include engaging effectively with different types of institutions, including small liberal arts colleges, research intensive universities, regional comprehensives, and others. Another area for discussion will be capacity building initiatives, which could include recruiting tools, online courses, information for building effective certification pathways, and tools for advocacy, for example. A major focus for the discussion will be on increasing the number of physics teachers, identifying barriers to doing so, and outlining strategies to overcome these barriers.
