Project Summary

The PhysTEC project activities at Rowan University enable Rowan to make our local effort a national model and one that will make a real impact in the State of New Jersey and surrounding region. Rowan is an ideal institution for a PhysTEC comprehensive grant; we have over 150 physics majors (and growing), a very strong Science Education program, a new tenure-track line in Physics Education, Learning Assistant courses, and a host of new, innovative ideas with the momentum to match. Through the PhysTEC grant, Rowan is developing the next steps to establishing a permanent framework for recruiting, retaining, training, inducting and mentoring future physics teachers. The PhysTEC grant provides the “linchpin” for success – the Teacher-in-Residence (TIR).

Rowan University named a PhysTEC Local Teacher of the Year in 2018.
