Now accepting PhysTEC 2012 Conference workshop proposals

Sep 08, 2011

The Physic Teacher Education Coalition (PhysTEC) annual conference for 2012 will be held in Ontario, California February 3 & 4, 2012 in conjunction with the AAPT Winter meeting.  PhysTEC invites proposals for 90 minute workshop sessions at the conference.  The theme for the conference is New Paradigms for Physics Teacher Education, though proposals related to any aspect of physics teacher preparation will be considered.  PhysTEC project management will form a committee to evaluate the proposals and select those that will be accepted.  Submission does not guarantee a workshop slot, and project management will determine appropriate sessions based on a number of criteria. If a proposal is accepted, the presenters' documented travel expenses will be reimbursed if requested.

The proposal requires a 100 word abstract, a list of objectives, the intended audience, an outline of facilitation strategies, and a brief professional biography.  The due date for proposals is October 10, 2011, and applicants will be notified by October 31st, 2011 if their proposal has been accepted.  Applications should be submitted electronically to blickenstaff@aps.org.
