the Physics Teacher Education Coalition
Many new physics teachers find themselves inadequately trained in physics content, unaware of effective physics and physical science teaching methods, or both. Often they have taken teaching methods courses that provide little preparation for the unique challenges of teaching physics. Physics and education faculty must work together to provide future physics teachers with strong pedagogical content knowledge – a combination of deep content knowledge in physics and an understanding of student learning processes and best teaching practices.
