Cal Poly completed its PhysTEC funding period in 2006-2007. The focus of Cal Poly's project was developing and assessing sustainable course reforms, increasing collaboration with the local school districts through a Teacher Advisory Group (TAG), and institutionalizing on-campus TIRs. Cal Poly now has one university-funded TIR. Day-by-day plans have been developed for both introductory calculus-based physics and physical science for elementary teachers, to allow interactive course reforms to be institutionalized regardless of the particular instructor teaching a given course. Faculty and TIRs also worked with local teachers in the TAG to develop and evaluate observation instruments to use in the introductory pedagogy course.
