Science
written by Jeffery Mervis
Although foregoing research in favor of teaching is often scorned by undergraduate faculty and advisors, several major U.S. research universities are beginning to steer some of their best students into the classroom in order to address a serious shortage of quality science and math teachers. Brigham Young University graduated 5% of the total new physics teachers for 2006 as a result of emphasizing the value of teaching and giving students an opportunity for early classroom experiences. The University of Texas, Austin's program UTeach encourages all entering freshmen to consider teaching, and exposes those interested to classroom experience and courses in pedagogy. The University of Colorado at Boulder  uses Learning Assistants in introductory courses, who are required to attend a weekly class on education and learning theory that is taught by a master teacher.
