Hillsdale College has instituted a Physical Science by Inquiry professional development program for in-service teachers, grades K-12.With the institutions support, we were able to successfully train local teachers.

During the last two years, the college has introduced a new course requirement for education majors focusing on new developments in physics education research and providing new training methods: PHY 459 - The Teaching of Secondary Physics.

Also, there is a new focus on inquiry-based instruction in lower divisional physics classes in order to expose future teachers to new teaching approaches early on.

Finally, Hillsdale College provides teachers and schools with ongoing training and support for StarLab presentations.
