The Physics Education Group at the University of Washington is deeply involved in preparing K–12 teachers to teach physics and physical science by inquiry. During the academic year, the Department offers special courses for preservice (prospective) teachers. During the summer, the group conducts a six week, intensive NSF Summer Institute for Inservice Teachers. The group also designs and helps conduct local short-term workshops for teachers. This paper is a distillation of more than 25 years of experience in working with K–12 teachers.  

Teacher preparation has been an integral part of our group's comprehensive program in research, curriculum development, and instruction. Research by our group focuses on investigations of student understanding in physics. The results are used to guide the design of instructional materials for various student populations at the introductory level and beyond. We have drawn on our research findings and teaching experience in developing Physics by Inquiry. This self-contained, laboratory-based curriculum is designed for use in university courses to prepare K–12 teachers to teach physics and physical science effectively. Ongoing assesment of the instructional materials takes place both at our university and at pilot sites.
