We have now revised our secondary education concentration in physics to implement a LSU version of the UTeach program, called GeauxTeach.  We are also involved in developing a Master of Natural Science professional master's degree for science and math teachers.

We have also implemented a learning assistant program for recitations in the first semester of our introductory algebra-based physics class.  We hope to expand this effort this fall to include the calculus-based engineering class.

PTEC membership will assist us in incorporating the best practices of teacher training into these curricula, and assist us in developing courses for these programs.
